Holy Trinity Seminary hosts Living Stations of the Cross

On Palm Sunday of each year, Holy Trinity Seminary hosts Living Stations of the Cross. The long standing tradition of live meditations on the Stations of the Cross was conceived many years ago by seminarians who wanted to give back to the students of the university in a spiritual way. Later it was opened to everyone who wanted to experience this prayerful and powerful event. It has thus become a way of spiritual preparation for the upcoming Holy Week for all individuals wishing to attend. This is a seminary sponsored event planned and hosted by the seminarians themselves. Collaboration for the meditation is also supported by the University of Dallas Campus Ministry.

The meditation consists of still framed depictions of Christ’s passion played by both seminarians and University of Dallas students. During each station, a meditation is read reflecting on the meaning of the station and calling us to examine our own lives in preparation for the upcoming Holy Week.  The music, presented by the Holy Trinity Seminary Scholá, adds to the prayerful mood and reflection. While most live stations appear to be a production, this event is geared to reflect something more. The goal of these stations is directed in providing the audience with the opportunity for deep prayer and reflection on Christ’s passion.
All guests & University of Dallas students are encouraged to attend the Living Stations of the Cross at 7:30 PM on Palm Sunday, March 20th, in the Chapel at Holy Trinity Seminary (3131 Vince Hagan Drive, Irving, TX 75062). This event is open to everyone who wishes to experience the prayerful and powerful experience. Guests are encouraged to bring family and friends to enter into Holy Week with the focus on the true mystery we are preparing to celebrate. There is a a reception immediately following the prayer.
