STATIONS OF THE CROSS
Saturday, April 15, 2017 10:00 AM
Hispanic members of the Prince of Peace congregation gathered outside St. Patrick’s Church for the annual Good Friday presentation of the Stations of the Cross. Fortino Miranda carried a large wooden cross, depicting Jesus Christ for this year’s observance. Also known as the Way of the Cross or El Via Crucis, the event includes a re-enactment of the crucifixion. The tradition includes 14 different scenes depicting the travel of Jesus to Mount Calvary with prayers accompanying each stop on the journey.
