Stations of The Cross, Fridays 12:00 noon.
As part of its Lenten observances, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Wellsboro offers the service of Stations of the Cross at 12 noon on Fridays.

The practice of following Christ’s path to Golgotha, the place of His crucifixion, with recollections of the events that occurred on the way, was observed by a nun visiting Jerusalem in the Fourth Century. At St. Paul’s, fourteen ‘stations’ located around the inside of the church recall these events for worshipers, who may move from station to station if they wish. At each station, a brief meditation and an appropriate prayer are offered.

The service is brief, lasting for only about twenty minutes, making it possible for persons to attend during the lunch hour. Although brief, the service can be very helpful as one draws closer to Palm Sunday, Holy Week, and the Sunday of the Lord’s Resurrection. The congregation of St. Paul’s welcomes all who may wish to join in this very appropriate Lenten devotion.
