Councils should partner with their parishes to sponsor a “Simple Supper & Stations” on Fridays during Lent. If your parish already prays the Stations of the Cross, ask your pastor’s permission to serve a simple supper of meatless soup and bread to parishioners and attendees before or after the stations. This provides a communal opportunity for participation in the traditional Lenten observances of fasting and abstaining from meat. If your parish doesn’t already pray the Stations together, ask your pastor if he would consider adding both the suppers and Stations to the parish calendar.
The prayers, mediations and hymns for Stations of the Cross can be found in The Way of the Cross: Traditional and Modern Meditations (#363), available online at kofc.org/cis. Copies can be ordered at knightsgear.com.
