A tradition dating back to the earliest days of Christian pilgrimage, observing the Stations of the Cross was a way to pause, reflect and pray.

Traditionally, pilgrims would visit Jerusalem and walk the route to Calvary from Pilate's house.  As time went one, pictures were placed along the route where pilgrims could watch Christ's journey and reflect on what Jesus meant to them. Today, those images are found around the world on the walls of many Christian churches. 

Most often observed on Fridays during Lent, Stations of the Cross can be done all through the year, as it encourages us to develop our personal journey with Christ.
