Stations of the Cross

Scroll to explore

The Stations of the Cross originated when early Christians visited Jerusalem hoping to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, tracing the path from Pilate’s house to Calvary. They would pause for prayer and devotion at various points. Eventually those pilgrims brought the practice back to their home countries and ever since, Christians of differing traditions have used this form of devotion.

This year pilgrims will be able to journey around seven stations in Dean’s Park, featuring artwork by local school children and material to encourage reflection and prayer. A final station will be placed inside the Minster on Easter Day, Sunday 17 April.

The stations will be available for people to explore each day from Ash Wednesday, 2 March, to 24 April in Dean’s Park, which lies to the north of the cathedral and is open daily from 7am to 7pm.
