Here are some pictures from our Good Friday Stations of the Cross event. We set up the room with tables at each “station” with artwork and depicting each event. The tables had props for each station. Then we filled the place with about 500 candles and votive holders in blue and red that we bought from the Catholic supply house.
Randy set up some lighting with break-up patterns to cycle through to give some subtle, but interesting visual changes. We also had The Passion of the Christ playing (no audio) on the screens and created an audio track with some cool chants, masses, and vibey music that played non-stop throughout the day (6 a.m. – 6 p.m.).
When people arrived, they received a booklet that guided them through the stations, explaining each one, and suggesting a prayer for each station. They were also given a candle. The last station they arrived at was at the center of the room with the cross and communion. Each person took communion there and lighted and left their candle as a prayer.
We have averaged 500+ people and it has been a really powerful event for us.
PS: By request, HERE is the PDF of the booklet that we used. It was printed in booklet for, so it needs to be printed back to back and folded in half, but you get the picture. Either way, the pages are numbered.
