GALLERY: The Way of the Cross

Around 300 people gathered at Kilaben Bay on Palm Sunday to walk the Way of the Cross. 

"God is rich in mercy" (Ephesians 2:4) informed this year's Way of the Cross and at each of the fourteen stations those gathered were invited to both reflect on God's mercy and be people of mercy. 

Students, teachers and parents from thirteen schools from around the diocese, as well as staff from the CSO and Chancery and members of the Diocesan Council for Ministry with Young People, brought each station to life in compelling ways. The first station was re-enacted by children from St Joseph's Primary School in Merriwa and the Upper Hunter was also represented by students from St Joseph's High School, Aberdeen. 

The parishioners of St Joseph's, Toronto and St John Vianney, Morisset provided a wonderful afternoon tea. 

The weather, the gorgeous bush setting and the Way were appreciated by all gathered there in faith. Photos courtesy of Joanne Isaac and Rachel Pether, St John Vianney Primary Morisset.
