Experience the Stations began in 2004 as a multimedia event that has been occurring every Lent since then. It is a modern look at the traditional Catholic prayer, the Stations of the Cross. It consists of video clips, mainstream music, and testimonies, live special effects and more. This rendition of the Stations of the Cross has been performed at University of Illinois at Chicago, De La Salle Institute, St. Rita High School, Marist High School, St. Xavier University, Holy Family Parish, St. Germaine Catholic Church, St. Bede Catholic Church and St. Isidore Catholic Church. Over 10,000 people across Chicagoland have experienced the Stations like never before.
These Stations were designed so that we would stop just looking at the Stations of the Cross as just something we do during Lent, but rather an Experience that we all face everyday of our lives. Christ, went through an enormous amount of suffering and pain before his death. Although he died for us and for our sins, he did not take away the amount of suffering that we would go through. The Stations of the Cross are so important because the can help us find some sort of meaning in our sufferings. Because we can see that many of the struggles that Christ went through are very similar to the same struggles that we all still go through today.
