Justice and Peace Stations of the Cross

An annual Good Friday tradition, this form of the Way of the Cross is a silent prayer journey. To ensure recommended distancing guidelines, this year we will gather at the new bandshell in Riverside Park, La Crosse.

The Justice and Peace Stations of the Cross recalls the journey of Jesus as he carried his cross to Calvary. This prayer service looks at our modern-day justice issues in light of this biblical event.
