Lenten retreat 2022. Easter: Way of the Cross

Easter: Way of the Cross is a guided series of scriptures, reflections and prayers that follow the encounters leading up to the crucifixion of Christ. Join us in preparing Easter!


Beginning the Journey

We invite you on a journey of encounter this Easter.

The Christian life is a journey. Each encounter invites a personal opportunity for interior analysis, growth and a guided way forward with Jesus.

The cross for many scriptural figures becomes a point of choice, and so too for us. The Passion Narrative exemplifies the journey of Christian conversion. It reveals the heart. Together we can pray for the courage to look honestly at our interior life and encounter Christ in a new way.

Allow yourself to be guided by these spiritual reflections. Like Christ, may we journey to the cross and see His glory.

The retreat:

The Way of the Cross is a series of 14 guided reflections and moments of prayer that explore Easter through the scriptures.

Pray along every Wednesday and Friday from Ash Wednesday to Good Friday.

Simply follow the guided scriptures, reflections and prayers you will receive.
