Living Stations at 3:00pmCelebration of the Lord’s Passion at 7:00pm
The emphasis today is on the cross. It is not on death. This is a day of conversion, for the love of God is made most manifest in the death of Christ. We do not mourn. We celebrate not sorrow but the victory of the cross. We move more deeply into the Paschal Mystery—the mystery of life and death in our own lives.On Good Friday at Pax Christi we celebrate Living Stations of the Cross. Stations of the Cross is a devotional prayer in which people meditate on a number of scenes from the passion and death of Jesus. At Pax Christi, we call these stations “living” stations because our youth act out the scenes. The reflections include prayer and music. Please join us for this Pax Christi Good Friday tradition! The “Celebration of the Lord’s Passion” is to remember the passion and death of Jesus. The service is not a Mass. We begin with a short time of silent, reverent prayer. Then we move into the Liturgy of the Word.
