This year’s Way of the Cross
The Way of the Cross will be celebrated on Friday, April 7th at 10am beginning at St. Peter-in-Chains Cathedral, Peterborough
Time Left Till the 2023 Way of the Cross
The Way of the Cross, initiated by the youth of the Diocese of Peterborough in 2005, is a dramatic re-enactment of the 14 Stations of the Cross in the streets of downtown Peterborough on Good Friday. It has grown through the years to be an opportunity for people of all backgrounds and faith traditions to reflect on Jesus’ final moments, and is a stunning witness to the Christian faith. In a profound sense, it goes beyond a mere theatrical presentation and is truly a dynamic act of worship.
The Way of the Cross begins with a short ecumenical prayer service at St. Peter-in-Chains Catholic Cathedral. The presentation is done outdoors, and processes along Hunter Street and over the Hunter Street bridge, culminating in a live re-enactment of the Crucifixion outside Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. After the actors, participants are encouraged to follow in procession through downtown Peterborough, meditating and singing between Station Stops along the way.
