Stations of the Cross and I Lent

Stations of the Cross

Fridays during Lent and Holy Week at 12:05 PM in the Chapel, and on Tuesdays during Lent and Holy Week at 7:00 PM in the Church.  The Tuesday Stations of the Cross contains music accompanied by the organ.

At the entrance, and at each station we sing selected verses of the Stabat Mater (At the Cross Her Station Keeping) in English, as given in the booklet provided.
Holy Communion is also included in the Stations.
We chant the Agnus Dei from Mass XVIII (the simple chant).
During Communion, we alternate by week:
- Jesus, my Lord, my God, my All ("Sweet Sacrament") (on Weeks I, III, and V of Lent)
- Let thy Blood in mercy poured ("Jesu Meine Zuversicht") (on Weeks II and IV of Lent and in Holy Week)
The recessional hymn is Lift High the Cross ("Crucifer")
