Stations of the Cross

Stations of the Cross

The Stations of the Cross, also known as the Way of the Cross, the Via Crucis, and the Via Dolorosa, commemorate the 14 key moments of Christ’s Passion and Crucifixion.

The Stations originated in medieval Europe when war prevented Christians from making pilgrimage to the Holy Land.  Artists created works depicting scenes of Christ’s Passion and Death that were put on display inside and outside of Churches.

Transfiguration is fortunate to have two sets of Stations in our building. 

  • The first hang along the back walls of our Church.  
  • In 2013, Transfiguration was generously gifted the Stations of the Cross from St. John’s Catholic Church in St. Paul upon its closing. These remarkable Stations are hung in the hallway connecting the Church to the School.  

Our School and Faith Formation children also present Living Stations of the Cross during Lent.  Please look for more information in the bulletin and on our web page for dates and times.

Living Stations of the Cross

Stations of the Cross may be prayed at any time. Please join us on the Fridays of Lent at 7:00 p.m. to pray the Stations of the Cross.
