~XIV from the Crowd: “XIV from the Crowd: A Meditation on the Stations of the Cross” is a prayerful yet stirring version of the Way of the Cross that features sacred music, traditional prayers, and dramatic monologues. In the monologues, characters express the thoughts and feelings of people encountering Jesus during his Passion. Praying the Stations is a great way to prepare for Holy Week, and “XIV” is a powerful way to enter into the Stations. “XIV from the Crowd” will be held this Friday (March 23) at St. James at 7 p.m.
