STATIONS OF THE RESURRECTION – Sunday, May 24, 4:00 p.m. via Zoom
Through Lent and Passiontide there has been a long tradition in the Church of meditating on the events of the suffering and death of the Lord Jesus, through the Stations of the Cross. In the latter part of the twentieth century a complementary devotion emerged, possibly from the Iberian peninsula, called the Stations of the Resurrection or the Stations of Joy.
Join us on Sunday, May 24 at 4:00 p.m. for a service celebrating our Lord’s Resurrection. As with the Stations of the Cross, we move from station to station, reading an appropriate Bible passage and meditating on it. By using the resurrection appearances as a focus for reflection and meditation we have an opportunity to appreciate and celebrate the Easter mysteries of the resurrection of our Lord. Note that some of the readings will be different to the last Stations of the Resurrection service.
This is an online service. You will need to have Zoom installed on your computer or Smart Phone to follow the service. A link to the service will be provided on the day by email. Regular members of the Bible Study and Wednesday Group will be sent a link automatically. To register your name to take part, please contact the office, 302-994-6607 or email
