A Virtual Stations of the Cross in Solidarity with Survivors of Sexual Violence and Abuse

You’re invited to virtually join the National Shrine of Saint Rita of Cascia for Stations of the Cross as we pray in solidarity with survivors of sexual violence and abuse. Fr. Jim Paradis, O.S.A. wrote this powerful Way of the Cross as a way to “stand as brothers and sisters with all those who have been handed over to suffering, in particular, those harmed by sexual abuse.” We will virtually gather at 7:00 p.m. on Palm Sunday, March 28, 2021. You, your parish communities, friends, and families are encouraged to pre-register here.
