Stations of the Cross

The Stations of the Cross are a 14-step Catholic devotion that commemorates Jesus Christ’s last day on Earth as a man. The 14 devotions, or stations, focus on specific events of His last day, beginning with His condemnation. The stations are commonly used as a mini pilgrimage, where at each station, the individual recalls and meditates on a specific event from Christ’s last day. 

We adore you O Christ and we bless You…

Because by your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world…

Walk the Stations of the Cross

Located at The Cloisters on the Platte, the Stations of the Cross is a 2,500 foot long walking tour comprised of 14 sculpture stations that represent Christ’s trial through his burial.


As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace.
