Experience the Stations of the Cross this Lent

Lakebay Community Church is excited to be hosting a Stations of the Cross installation this year.

Our curator, Roshni Robert, wrote this by way of explanation:

Lakebay Community Church's Stations of the Cross project will be based on the "Scriptural Way of the Cross" that Pope John Paul II instated in 1991. We have chosen this Way because some of the traditional stations are not actually found in the passion story as it stands in scripture. Several trained and untrained artists from within and a few from outside our congregation will be each representing a respective station however they see fit. There are no limits to medium, size or content, provided the intended station is actually portrayed. Some stations will be interactive, some purely visual, all invoking the viewer to re-contemplate each action leading to the death and resurrection of the Christ. My intention for the project was not necessarily to show off the talent in our community (though that is definitely an added bonus), but more to select individuals whom I believe would convey a new or unique perspective on their chosen station. 

The Stations of the Cross will be on display beginning with an artist's reception that is open to the public at Lakebay Community Church on March 28 at 12:30 in the afternoon. The sanctuary will also be open for viewing following the 28th during Holy Week 9am-1pm Tuesday through Friday and also by appointment.

All are welcome to attend! We are looking forward to sharing some new views on the subject of this contemplative and joyful season.
