You are again invited to Walk with Mary on her Way of the Cross….  At the Annunciation, it was announced to Mary, to her surprise and awe as a mere teenager, that she was chosen by God to be the Mother of God’s only Son.  Rooted in an unwavering faith in God and in God’s plan, her human response to that divine call was a life changing, world changing “YES!”.  Her journey as Mother of Our God would take her from a simple room in Nazareth to the foot of a cross on Golgotha.  All are welcome as we accompany Mary on her last walk with Jesus…her Son, her Body and Blood… as we pray the Stations of the Cross… Monday, 4th, 11 am & 7 pm in St. Denis Church.
