LENT 2015: GOOD FRIDAY WAY OF THE CROSS @ MCIC

Here is a glimpse of the Stations of the Cross for the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception this Holy Week 2015.

Stations of the Cross (or Way of the Cross; in Latin, Via Crucis) refers to a series of images depicting Jesus Christ on the day of his crucifixion and also to the prayers Christians say when contemplating those images. Often a series of 14 images will be arranged in numbered order around a church nave or along a path, and the faithful travel from image to image, in order, stopping at each "station" to say the selected prayers and reflections. This will be done individually or in groups.

For the longest time this tradition had been existing, and families and groups have been sharing their time and talent to prepare for the different stations of the cross around the MCIC-Ateneo De Zambaonga block through La Purisima, Campaner, Nunez Street and Governor Alvarez.

The stations are up by about 3 to 4 a.m. and waiting for the Way of the Cross at 5 a.m.  The preparations are not necessarily extravagant considering the Lenten theme.

Have a Blessed Lenten celebration!

P.S. 
Thanks to Aleli D. and Kaye F.A. for preparing the Seventh Station and most of all, also to Regine Ryan Bernaldo who had prepared the Seventh Station beautifully the past years.
