Stations of the Cross I St. Joseph Vietnamese Church


The Stations of the Cross was walked by the faithful of St. Joseph Vietnamese Catholic Church in Charlotte, North Carolina at the three o'clock hour on Good Friday. St. Joseph has life-size replicas of each station along the perimeter of their church. A cross carried by the faithful, took turns carrying at each station. The Stations of the Cross is walked every Friday during lent, but especially on Good Friday at the three o'clock hour, the hour of great mercy in which Jesus died on the cross. Faithful walk the stations in remembrance of Our Lord's passion, which was the ultimate sacrifice for the sins of humanity.
