Faith Group to Conduct Public Celebration of the Stations of the Cross on Capitol Hill
Contact: Christian Defense Coalition, 202-547-1735, 540-538-4741 cell
WASHINGTON, Mar. 27 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Christian Defense Coalition will sponsor the Stations of the Cross this Wednesday, March 28, at 12:00 P.M.
The event will begin at Columbus Fountain in front of Union Station at noon and participants will walk across Capitol Hill, carrying a seven foot wooden cross, as they celebrate the 14 Stations of the Cross.
They will stop in front of Senate and House Office buildings, the Supreme Court, the United States Capitol and the Library of Congress to reflect, pray, worship and mediate on the passion and love of Christ in preparation for Holy Week.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, comments, "As we approach Holy Week, it is important to reflect on the passion and love that Christ has for all humanity. Our prayer is that as we publicly celebrate the Stations of the Cross, and carry the wooden cross, it will remind those on Capitol Hill to follow the example of Christ with respect to humility, dedication and sacrifice for their fellow man.
At a time when there is so much political posturing and rancor in Washington, D.C., one should reflect on the message of the cross and the work of Christ concerning public service and policy."
