Drive Thru Stations of the Cross!

We want to welcome all who are seeking to encounter a radical Love that overcomes all things! Come to Fort Thomas, KY sometime between April 1 and April 3 to pray the Stations of the Cross from your car, bike, or on foot! Attached is a MapQuest PDF to use to move through each station location.

Drive time: ~35 minutes. Expect that the journey will take 50-60 minutes.
I want to welcome you and yours to what should be a beautiful and prayerful time. These
stations will be available through Holy Week. This journey will take
you to 14 different stations hosted by 14 different homes within our community.

This experience was designed to honor Holy Week! As many of you know, this event began in response to COVID last year. This year, there is so much hope ringing through our world. So I would like to invite you to participate with a heart ready and expecting to meet Jesus on the streets of Fort Thomas, KY! Let us unite in prayer as we journey through our Lord’s passion during this year's Drive Thru Stations of the Cross.

Our prayer is that Jesus' love would, again, echo through all of Fort Thomas. We pray his love would sound out all fear, anxiety, restlessness, and loneliness. So let us come together. Let us pray together. Let us gaze upon our Lord's scandalous love for us!

Below, you will find all you need to move through each station. Included is the address of
each station and the station reading. We recommend having kids take turns reading the
stations. We also have included coloring pages for the kids. Additionally, attached is a mapquest PDF for those without GPS access. Take note; some of the station locations have changed.

Also, I'd like to take a moment to thank all of those in our community that have made this event possible again this year! It has definitely been a team effort and I am so grateful for the love and collaboration of all those that have linked arms to bring this to life again.
