Join our Executive Director, Rev. Jason Wells, Rev. Colin Chapman of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Londonderry and other New Hampshire faith leaders for a live-streamed service of the Stations of the Cross on Good Friday, April 10, 2020 at 6:00pm.

The Stations of the Cross offer prayerful reflection on the death of Jesus Christ, marking specific scenes (“stations”) from his condemnation by Pontius Pilate through his death on the Cross.

This particular version of the Stations of the Cross will reflect on Christ’s passion and its intersection with the immigrant experience.

Earlier this year, St. Peter’s Episcopal Church offered the “Our Neighbors, Ourselves” art exhibit including art reflecting the immigrant experience. They intended to exhibit this art in a prayerful space until Easter. Now that their church building has closed due to COVID-19, we look forward to broadcasting this prayer service to you at home.

The order of service is adapted from two sources:

  1. Station of the Cross developed by the Interfaith Immigration Coalition
  2. Stations of the Cross from King of Peace Episcopal Church, Kingsland, Georgia

Gwyneth Leech of Saint Paul’s on the Green, an Epsicopal Church in Norwalk, Connecticut created the artwork featured at each station. Her website shows samples of the Station’s art and she has given permission for their use in this service.
