The Neighborhood and Urban Stations of the Cross are traditions of the Archdiocese of Atlanta. People get a chance to follow Jesus to Calvary by walking the stations of the cross in their neighborhood. The multilingual walks include music, prayer and reflection on the social injustices of today. Here are two taking place of note:
