Annual Via Crucis Set For March 31

Published March 8, 2007

The second annual Via Crucis, a powerful experience of the Stations of the Cross, will be held March 31 at St. Pius X High School from 1:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m.

The event provides an opportunity for a unique experience of the Lenten Stations of the Cross, with the traditional Stations intertwined with personal testimonies and clips from the film “The Passion of the Christ.”

Last year, approximately 800 people attended the first Via Crucis, sponsored by the Leadership Institute, an apostolate of Regnum Christi dedicated to forming young men to “love Christ, serve people and build the church.”

This year, teens and young adults are especially invited to attend the event, though it is open to those of all ages.

Last year, each speaker brought the various Stations to life. Some spoke of massive, burdensome crosses, while others spoke of the simpler, day-to-day crosses they carry. Many who attended the first Via Crucis said the event was a moving and meaningful way to reflect on the Lenten season.

This year, the Via Crucis Band will begin playing at 12:30 p.m., and confessions and adoration will also be available. The event is free of charge.

St. Pius High School is located at 2674 Johnson Road NE in Atlanta.
