The Way of the Cross

Assemble at Margaret Aylward Centre for Faith and Dialogue (behind Holy Faith Convent) at 12 noon. Alternatively, if you are able for a longer walk you may meet here at Our Lady of Victories at 11.30am and we will walk together to Margaret Aylward Centre.

There will be five ‘moments’ along the way, where we pause, listen to a scripture reading, a reflection and sing a short (Taize) response.

We proceed along the route in silence, keeping on the footpath, and people are invited to take turns in carrying the cross. Join us for a bowl of soup and a roll afterwards in the parish centre of Our Lady of Dolours, where a donation can be made to Trocaire/Christian Aid.
