Ecumenical Way of the Cross

Hundreds gathered on Palm Sunday for the annual Ecumenical Way of the Cross at Kilaben Bay.

Participants in the Be Grow Show retreat (which had taken place over the weekend), along with students from several of our primary and high schools, acted out the story of Jesus’ passion, crucifixion and resurrection.

Vice Chancellor Pastoral Ministries, Teresa Brierley, said that the beautiful bush setting on the lake is a fitting place to bear witness.

“I love the look on the faces of the young children who come along. They are captivated by the story and the accompanying movement. There is silence from all for the fourteen stations and one is able to feel the reflections of the life of Jesus and the lives of those gathered. The faces of the children at the Stations of the Cross convinced me that we need to keep on exposing our children and young people to our story of Jesus to give us hope and meaning,” Teresa said.
