Stations of the Cross at Crossroads Mall
Community Room at Crossroads Mall, 15600 NE 8th St, Bellevue
Friday, March 29, 2013
It’s one of the most ancient Christian traditions, dating back to the Emperor Constantine, and a new, young Anglican church in Bellevue will be performing it in the mall.
The Stations of the Cross began when pilgrims were first allowed to retrace Jesus’ steps in ancient Jerusalem in the fourth century. Because Good Friday is the day designated to remember Jesus’s death, Christians have been following the “stations” Jesus followed on the night he was sentenced to die.
This Good Friday, March 29, Advent Anglican church will host an opportunity for the Bellevue community to explore what these ancient traditions can mean for us today. The new church will host a Stations of the Cross exhibit and service in the community room at the Crossroads Mall, giving an opportunity for anyone out on Friday night to explore this 1700-year-old sacred tradition.
Following the Good Friday service, Advent Anglican will host Holy Week services on Holy Saturday and Easter.
On Holy Saturday, March 30, Advent Anglican will hold a Holy Saturday vigil. The vigil begins in the evening and ends as the church starts Easter celebrations at sundown. The service is a chronicle of the narrative of Scripture with a creative edge. It will include dramatic readings, music, and “The Great Noise,” something that must be experienced to be understood. The Holy Saturday service concludes with a party beginning at sundown.
