While many of us have been rushing indoors to avoid the cold, I had the pleasure of visiting Lester B. Pearson Catholic High School’s outdoor Stations of the Cross. This colourful display has been drawing students, staff, and community members alike back into nature.
The school’s chaplain, Donna Hughes, pointed out to me that these outdoor Stations of the Cross invite us to consider our daily journey with God. These unique and beautiful pieces of art are a perfect addition to the school’s community garden. This combination of the tranquility of nature and the feelings of reflection that the Stations of the Cross evoke, has resulted in a quietly powerful prayer space.
