April 2: Good Friday Stations of the Cross
St. Paul’s Liberty Lutheran Church in Deerfield is offering a self-driving community Stations of the Cross experience on Good Friday.
The April 2 activity is open to the public.
Participants start by picking up a guidebook outside the church, 3494 Oak Park Road. From there, they’ll take a self-driving tour, stopping by 14 different Deerfield-area Stations of the Cross sites.
Two of the stops are at the church, two are at homes in the surrounding countryside and the rest are homes in the village of Deerfield.
Each house has a stake outside it with a cross on it and sign designating which station it is. Participants can stay at each station stay as long as they like.
There are readings, prayers and reflections in the guidebook.
Participants do not need to get out of their vehicle for this experience and none of the stops are on a busy road.
The last station is in front of a rock that has three crosses naturally etched in it and is over 1 million years old. It was found in a farm field.
