Every year during Lent, Catholic churches and colleges participate in the Stations of the Cross—the 14-step devotion which marks Jesus’s last day on Earth. The Stonehill community has added a social justice element to its Stations and recently around 160 participated in the procession. Fourteen campus groups provided prayers specific to their social justice cause for the outdoor Stations, which began at the Chapel of Mary and processed around the main quad stopping at each Station marked by a white cross.
The participating campus groups were: Moore Center for Gender Equality, Facilities Management, disABILITY Enlightenment Project, R.I.S.E. (Radiant Inspirational Sisters Empowered), Campus Police, Faculty Senate, Athletics, Growing Climate Justice, United House of Justice, SGA (Student Government Association) Diversity Committee, H.O.P.E. (Honoring our neighbor, Organizing for justice, Practicing peace, Encountering God), ITS (Into the Streets) Coordinators, Senior Leadership Team, Knights of Columbus.
