Stations of the Cross Through the Neighborhood
with Father Bruce Nieli, C.P.S.!
Good Friday, March 30 at 12:00 Noon
Parking Lot Behind St. Patrick Church
Please join us at NOON on Good Friday as we walk the Stations of the Cross at historical and everyday landmarks throughout our downtown neighborhood. We walk through the neighborhood carrying a cross, stopping at various points of interest related to social justice, to pray and reflect. The journey begins in the St. Patrick School parking lot and ends inside the Church. Station locations include the Civil Rights Museum, WLOK, Clayborn Temple, Ida B. Wells Memorial, as well as other sites such as a playground, an apartment building, and a vacant lot.
Fr. Bruce will be leading us in reflection at each stop and in song with his guitar as we process on the journey. It’s a unique tradition at St. Pat’s, which provides a profound and deeply spiritual experience.
This is a family-friendly event, so load up the baby slings and the strollers. The St. Patrick bus will be available for those who would like to participate but are unable to walk the route, and water will be available as needed.
Following the Stations, join us for our Good Friday Service at 3:00 pm in the Church.
Father Bruce Nieli, C.P.S. is a priest of the Missionary Society of St. Paul the Apostle. During the Year of Mercy, Father Nieli was commissioned by Pope Francis as one of the Missionaries of Mercy.
