Since the times of the Crusades, christians have loved to make pilgrimages to the Holy Land to see the place where jesus Christ lived and especially to visit the City of jerusalem, and walk the path from Pilate’s Palace where Jesus was condemned, to the Hill of Calvary - The Via Dolorosa.  As only the privileged could afford to make the journey to Palestine, it became a custom in churches in Europe to place fourteen pictures especially depicting scenes from Christ’s Passion with a wooden cross under each picture - these were known as the Stations of the Cross. Then the devotion of the Way of the Cross grew - praying and meditating as one moved from one station to another - pausing and reflecting on the scene portrayed. In our new church the Stations of the Cross wre designed by the same artist who inspired the figures of the Madonna and the Risen Christ. See below for the Stations of the Cross in the old church.
