(Virtual) Way of the Cross for Economic and Ecological Justice

Maryknoll Global Concerns Way of Cross.jpg

The Maryknoll Office of Global Concerns has developed a virtual Stations of the Cross, a Catholic, Christian devotion common during Lent, in which the campus community is invited to participate.

This online gathering will cast the story of Jesus’ final days in a contemporary context that focuses on pressing economic and ecological issues in our world.  These two issues relate to two of the Society of Jesus’ UAP (Universal Apostolic Preferences): Walking with the Excluded and Caring for Our Common Home.

Interested participants can click here to RSVP to the live virtual presentation, scheduled for Good Friday, April 10 at12:00 noon.  Those unable to join the live Good Friday service can view a slide show  and accompanying script to learn more about these issues.
