The Migrant Way of the Cross

Calling All Artists, Creative, and Compassionate People!

The Migrant Way of the Cross will be an event held at Centenary during Holy Week. Based on the Stations or Way of the Cross, this will be a prayerful encounter that brings to light the plight of migrants, refugees, and all those who inhabit the margins of our society. The Way of the Cross refers to a series of images depicting Jesus Christ on the day of his crucifixion. Traditionally, a series of 14 images are arranged in numbered order along a path and serve as a holy pilgrimage as one moves from station to station for intentional prayer and reflection.

Your help is needed to support this event. We will need to create 14 stations throughout the Sanctuary and Round Room for prayer and reflection during Holy Week (April 15-19). We hope to invite the community, particularly the Mercer community, as well. The stations should not be overly elaborate, but creative and inspirational as they call us to remember our immigrant and migrant siblings. A prayer guide will be created to accompany the stations. If you would like to help create the Migrant Way of the Cross, please attend a quick meeting on Sunday, February 17th immediately after the worship service downstairs. A light lunch will be provided. Contact Debra Williams for more information.
