Street witness

For our last Stations of the Cross before we break for the Easter holiday, we took our cross out to the local town centre and were joined by parishioners of St Anthony's Parish in Toongabbie. This kind of Stations of the Cross, made as a public witness to Christ, is a powerful expression of the Faith, claiming the streets for Christ and making a very easy-to-read sign for many to see. We stopped every few hundred metres to recall each of the fourteen stations, carrying the heavy cross as we went. Each word, each gesture, an emphatic expression of faith which was experienced, reverenced and glimpsed by many who were out and about that morning.
