Since ancient times, Christians have followed guided public meditations about the day Jesus died. All are invited to join in this meditation, The Stations of the Cross, on Good Friday, April 14, at Zion Lutheran Church in Leola. Jesus's journey from the garden of Gethsemane to the tomb will be described in a series of fourteen scriptures, and we will follow that journey with Him from station to station around the sanctuary. At each station, you will read one of the scriptures, take time to meditate and pray, then move to the next station. A guide booklet with the scriptures and meditations will be provided. The Stations will be open from 6:00 a.m. through 3:30 p.m. Zion Lutheran Church is at 18 Quarry Road, Leola. For questions, please contact our office at 656-9200 or visit our web page at
