12:00 Noon Stations of the Cross at Saint Mary’s
We will retell the traditional Gospel stories of Jesus of his trial and crucifixion. The liturgy will be simple with time set aside between each reading for reflection, reaction, song, chant or silence. This service is a remarkable opportunity to reflect on his story, and the parallels with our own stories, and the events of our own time. All are invited to bring a poem, or quote, or photo to share; or to just ‘be here’ in your own quiet space.
