The Stations of the Cross are prayed each Friday evening during Lent here at St John Vianney beginning at 6:30 pm.  This year you will have the opportunity and option to attend any or all of three events that includes the Stations of the Cross, Simple Soup Supper and Father William’s talk on being Called and Gifted.

The pre-Lenten season provides a good time to review the origin of The Stations of The Cross.

The Stations of the Cross started when early pilgrims visited holy places in Jerusalem where Jesus carried His cross. The actual path that Jesus followed on his way to be crucified was lost when Jerusalem was destroyed in wars in the early centuries.  Over time Jerusalem was reconstructed and today pilgrims follow the Via Dolorosa (Way of Sorrows), a modern remnant of the route that Jesus followed when carrying His cross from the Pretorium, where Pilate commended him to death, to the tomb where He was buried.  It is 500 meters long; that is about the distance from SJV Church, across Ygnacio Valley Blvd, to John Muir Hospital.
