|We Walk with Christ|
Second graders at St John the Baptist Catholic School in Vermillion lead the all-school, weekly stations of the cross Lenten devotion. The students pray at each of the 14 statues or "stations" in the church that together tell the Gospel story of Jesus' journey to Golgotha, or the Place of the Skull, on Calvary, the place of his crucifixion. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. It is a season of prayer, fasting and almsgiving, which prepares us for Christ's resurrection on Easter Sunday. Pictured, front left to right, are St John the Baptist students Bennet Brockman, Mary Strommen and David Reinardy.
