Stations of the Cross
In 2021, Arts@Plymouth assembled a collection of 15 giclée images of Christ’s last three days as told in the Gospels, known as the “Stations of the Cross.”
In ancient times, Christians used to make pilgrimages to Jerusalem for Holy Week. They hoped to walk literally along the path that Jesus took and enter into the drama of the journey to the cross in preparation for Easter.
The traditional “Stations of the Cross” emerged during the time of the crusades when it was no longer safe to visit the holy sites. In the 1500s, villages in Europe began to create replicas of the way of the cross, commemorating through art the places along the route in Jerusalem.
During Holy Week, there are a few opportunities to experience the Stations of the Cross, which will be available for viewing in the Waveland Hallway.
Self-Guided: Stop by anytime during Holy Week to walk the stations, read the scriptures, and meditate.
Guided: Attend a guided meditation on the Stations of the Cross led by one of Plymouth’s pastors on Saturday, April 16 at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., or 1 p.m.
Virtual Presentation: Take an hour for contemplation and reflection by watching our virtual presentation of the Stations of the Cross with music and scripture on YouTube here: youtu.be/SBieGO_GOxc.
The Stations of the Cross are available for view year-round on the third floor adjacent to the Rehearsal Hall Suite, near the Circle Drive entrance.
Walk the Labyrinth
During Holy Week, come walk the Labyrinth alone or with your small group in the comfort of Waveland Hall. Labyrinth will be open on Thursday, April 14 from 4-7 p.m., on Friday, April 15 from 12-7 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. There is time for you to walk while meditating or praying, to sit quietly listening to soft music or to draw and write your thoughts and prayers.
On Holy Saturday, April 16 from 7:30-9 p.m. there will be a celebration of Easter Vigil. Plymouth members and friends are invited to gather at church in Waveland Hall to hear the stories of our faith as we await the coming of Easter. Please note that there will be no Saturday Night Service at 5:30 p.m.
On Easter Sunday, April 17, join us with your friends and family in the celebration of the risen Christ and life restored at our Easter Sunday worship services at 9 and 11 a.m. in the Sanctuary. Bring your flowers along with you to decorate the flower cross. Both of these services will also be available live on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.
