In this season of Lent, the Ambedkar Road & Pali Pathar Community organized a unique Way of the Cross, on Sunday 23rd March 2014, which started soon after the 6 p.m. Mass, making its way from St. Anne’s Church along Pali Malla Road, Pali Naka, Ambedkar Road and ending at the Cross at Pali Pathar.
Two stations were prayed at every cross. Along the way, the Rosary was recited and hymns were sung. People attended in large numbers. The procession was managed meticulously by our volunteers who not only controlled the traffic but managed the crowd efficiently.
The Way of the Cross ended with a special thanksgiving prayer and a blessing. A card with the Stations of the Cross printed on it was given to everyone along with snacks and cold drink.
A special thanks to all the people (also from other communities) who attended this procession and the animators of the Ambedkar Road & Pali Pathar Community who put in a lot of hard work to plan, co-ordinate and conduct the Stations making it not only a very meaningful spiritual exercise but also a great success.
