Way of the Cross at St. Patrick's Church

St. Patrick's Church (137 McCaul St, Toronto)


Join us as we gather each Friday during Lent to walk the Way of the Cross with Jesus in this holy season at 5:30 pm inside St. Patrick Toronto Church.

"The Stations of the Cross, also known as the Way of the Cross or Via Crucis, commemorate Jesus's passion and death on the cross. There are 14 stations that each depict a moment on his journey to Calvary, usually through sacred art, prayers, and reflections. The practice began as pious pilgrims traced his path through Jerusalem on the Via Dolorosa. 

Later, for the many who wanted to pass along the same route, but could not make the trip to Jerusalem, a practice developed that eventually took the form of the fourteen stations currently found in almost every church throughout the world."
