A Children's Stations group in 2012
Children's Stations - Friday, April 18 in Parish Hall
Another awesome parish tradition awaits young families with this special Stations of the Cross just for kids. From 3:30 p.m. to 4:45 p.m., groups of children will travel through Weitzel Hall stopping in individual rooms to learn about that station of the cross and complete a hands on activity. Once a station is complete, each group says a prayer, receives a small gift and continues onto the next room until they've completed all stations. The entire experience is about an hour long with groups leaving every 10 minutes from Parish Hall.
