St. Thomas More Catholic Student Center at USC is presenting the Living Stations of the Cross on Wednesday, April 12, beginning at 6 p.m. on the Statehouse steps.
The annual procession, led by a student bearing a cross four days before Easter, is a chance for participants ― anyone who wishes to attend ― to reflect on the Passion of Christ and the afflictions that Jesus of Nazareth endured the day of the crucifixion.
“Have you ever been humiliated, betrayed, left in a dark place utterly alone?” Raquel Martínez, St. Thomas More Campus Minister, asked. “Here’s a time to look inside, into our own hearts, and think about what each of those 14 stops represent in our own lives, and to pray together.”
A narrator and musicians will accompany the 90-minute procession, beginning at the Statehouse, proceeding throughout campus and ending at the Trinity Episcopal Cathedral Cemetery across Sumter Street from the capitol.
