Virtual Prayer Service Stations of the Cross (2)

Virtual Prayer Service: Stations of the Cross
As we approach and enter Holy Week, all are welcome to join us on Thursday, March 25th at 1:30PM and/or on Wednesday, March 31 for a Virtual Prayer Service meditating on the Stations of the Cross.  Students from All Saints Academy at St. Ferdinand, St. Norbert and St. Rose Philippine Duchesne; Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Sacred Heart and St. Ann are recording a meditation on one of the stations. Students and teachers will gather on a Zoom call to pray together.  The prayer video features students reading the reflections near the appropriate station icon in their own church or chapel.  It also features images of the beautiful Stations of the Cross icons at St. Rita Parish in Vinita Park, and the handcrafted images by students at Our Lady of Guadalupe. All are welcome to join us in prayer by visiting
