Community invited to Stations of the Cross

St. John’s Episcopal Church in Halifax will host a time for reflection and prayer from noon until 6 p.m. today.

The church invites the community to an outdoor Stations of the Cross featuring the striking and contemporary images by artist Scott Erickson. The stations will be located on Mountain Road, where the church sits.

The sidewalk stations will use art to depict the final hours of Jesus’ life and will allow a self-guided opportunity to consider the meaning of his death, especially appropriate, as Good Friday will be observed worldwide today. Participants may go from picture to picture at their own pace, and the area is handicap accessible. A leaflet with scriptures and prayers will guide participants’ reflections. No reservation is needed but you can call the church for more information at 434-476-6696 or by email at
