St. John the Evangelist Parish in center city Philadelphia will hold its annual Via Crucis (the Way of the Cross) devotion on Good Friday, March 30 from 3 to 4 p.m.
The service will be in the upper church of St. John’s, located at 21 South 13th Street in Philadelphia.
Directed by Dr. Annette DiMedio and staged by Pearl Schaeffer, Via Crucis is a musical score by composer Franz Liszt depicting the Stations of the Cross. Each station will be recreated with narration, prayer and movement by St. John the Evangelist clergy and staff as well as University of the Arts students, faculty and alumni volunteers.
Via Crucis is open to the public and a free-will offering will be taken up in support of the parish’s music ministries.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
