Every Good Friday, Resurrection collects a financial gift for a global partner—and this year is more important than ever. We are helping to create a home for 1,000 orphans in Nigeria, a country much less equipped to face the threat of COVID-19 than our own.
On Good Friday, we tell the story of the Passion of Jesus as we remember the love of God that was demonstrated by Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross for the forgiveness of sins.
Daytime Activity: Take a Stations of the Cross Prayer Walk
Print the Stations of the Cross Guide and take a prayer walk, stopping along the way to observe each of the traditional stations. More instructions below.
In this ancient devotional service, we walk with Christ through the last hours of his life, reflecting on his sufferings, death, and burial through reading the Bible, music, and prayer. The stations are traditionally prayed between 12pm – 3pm, the hours when Jesus hung on the cross. This year our stations will be led outside at regular intervals from 12pm – 2:30pm.
