The Way of the Cross (also known as the Stations of the Cross) is a form of reflection on the suffering of Jesus on the road to the cross. This year, following our noon Good Friday service April 22nd, artists, writers and musicians will be interpreting 10 of these stations during an extended time of meditation and prayer. Faculty and student organists will be playing Marcel Dupre’s “Stations of the Cross” from the gallery, while student and faculty artists and writers interpret each station on the main floor. There will be a brief litany and prayer at each station and a procession with adoration of the cross following the final station. This time of reflection will begin immediately following the noon service. You are invited to come for the entire time or come for any part of this extended Good Friday prayer, which we estimate will begin around 12:45 and conclude around 2 p.m.
Here is the full Holy Week schedule of services:
April 17 – Palm/Passion Sunday with procession of palms;
April 21 - Maundy Thursday worship at 7 p.m. with Holy Communion and footwashing;
April 22 – Good Friday services at noon followed by meditation on the Way of the Cross.;

Morning Prayer – In addition, special services are planned for Morning Prayer April 18-21. Come hear daily reflections by Kat Borchers, Laura Ehlen, Sarah Peters, and Dr. George Heider. The theme is “Living in the Presence of God, Come What May.” There is no Morning Prayer on Good Friday because there are no classes that day.
