The following is an announcement from Agnes Au of the Chinese Martyrs Catholic Church:
There would be a Youth Stations of the Cross on Good Friday (April 6th) at the Chinese Martyrs Catholic Church (2755 Denison St.) which is presented by the young people in English. They need about 8 people to carry the cross and 2 to hold the candles at each station ( x 15 stations) and then pass to another group of people at the next station who feels that they want to be like Simon of Cyrene, ready to help Jesus to carry His cross or ready to pass on the Light of Christ. All songs accompanying each station are chosen by a group of young musician. Participants can choose to just pray, or sing, or carry the cross or hold the candles. After the Stations, there would be the Divine Mercy Chaplet followed by about 30 minutes of Veneration of the Cross with Taize prayer music. So this is an excellent opportunity for the young people to appreciate Christ’s passion in whatever way or form they feel related to or comfortable with.
The Youth Stations of the Cross would start at 7:00 pm sharp and expected to end around 8:45 pm.
This is the first Youth Stations of the Cross dedicated to our young people – children, teens, students, university members, young adults etc. Please pass the invitation on to all the young members of the church and invite them to come and experience this unique Station of the Youth where they can express their gratefulness for Christ’s suffering in their own ways.
Jesus said “Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these” (Mt. 19:14). Let all young people come forward or parents bring their children to keep Christ company on this special day when He died for us. That’s the least we can do for Him.
