2017 – THE STATIONS OF THE CROSS (The Way of the Heart)
The Stations of the Cross are a long-standing tradition among Christians. From the 14 original stations, “The Work of the People” have produced 10 films that we believe embody 10 stations. We hope these will be a blessing to your journey, and open up his Way of the Heart.
Participating in the Way of the Heart is an invitation to be in communion with Jesus, to enter into the mystery of his pain and suffering, and ultimately the most extreme display of sacrificial love in obedience to God. Throughout the Way of the Heart you will find that it is only through the experience of his death on Good Friday that we come alive with him on Easter Sunday.
Each Wednesday and Sunday, beginning with Ash Wednesday, Gloria Dei will focus on a particular Station.
The 40 day Season of Lent is the Christian preparation for the death and resurrection of Jesus.
Lent begins with Ash Wednesday, March 1, 2017. There will be two worship services: noon and 7pm. These are traditional services with the Imposition of Ashes.
If you cannot attend one of the Ash Wednesday services, a pastor will be present in the sanctuary from 8am – 9am for a brief prayer and the Imposition of Ashes. Then you will be on your way!
During the Season of Lent, Gloria Dei also provides First Communion instruction for children. Watch the newsletter and bulletin for more details.
Every Wednesday during Lent (March-April), there will be a soup/salad dinner at 6pm and a service at 7pm.
