Stations of the Cross


Annual Event

Downtown Stations of the Cross

Join us in praying the Stations of the Cross through downtown McAllen on Good Friday, April 6th, starting at noon and ending about 2:30. This annual event starts and ends at Archer Park in downtown McAllen.

This prayer emphasizes how the sufferings of Jesus continues today in the lives of the poor and oppressed, in sickness, unemployment, AIDS, addictions, violence and war. Participants will take turns carrying the large cross as the group winds its way through the McAllen downtown area, stopping at fourteen different locations, depicting the fourteen Stations of the Cross.

One of our station stops is at the Food Pantry at Sacred Heart parish, so please bring canned goods, rice or beans to donate to the Food Pantry.

Also, please bring your own water and comfortable shoes.

This is an excellent way for the whole family to pray together and remember the sufferings of Jesus on this holy day.

Has this been approved by the pastor and his "council"?

The Holy Spirit Peace and Justice Committee has been doing the downtown McAllen Stations of the Cross long before Louie and his 'self-appointed' parish council even existed and my bets are that it will continue long after Louie and his 'yes-sir' council have been relieved of their duties at Holy Spirit parish.
