Virtual Stations of the Cross

Because of COVID, many of us cannot get out to observe the Stations of the Cross as we normally would. So we’re inviting you to walk through the final hours of Jesus's life online. Featuring sculptures by famous artist Gib Singleton, readings and prayers by Washington Nationals Chaplain, Msgr. Rossetti, and singing by local DC opera singer Crossley Hawn, this moving presentation can be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home.

A Year in Review2020 was challenging.
Here are some bright spots for you to enjoy. Thank you for your patronage!
MIND. BLOWN. What an amazing experience.
