Tioga County teens to present Living Stations of the Cross

Living Stations of the Cross, a longtime tradition in Tioga County’s Blessed Trinity/St. Patrick parishes, is offering its final presentation of the Lenten season on Good Friday, April 7.

It will take place at 7:30 p.m. at St. Margaret Mary Church, 1110 Pennsylvania Ave., Apalachin. There will be a soup supper at 6 p.m. in the church hall before the performance, which features teens presenting a vivid depiction of Jesus’ passion. All are welcome to attend both the supper and the Living Stations.

Living Stations began in 1977 at St. Margaret Mary when a youth-led Stations of the Cross, now common in the Diocese of Rochester, was a fairly new concept. Since then, the initiative has expanded into several performances each Lent in Tioga County as well as other nearby regions.

Earlier this Lent, the Living Stations troupe was scheduled to appear on March 10 at Holy Family Church in Endwell, Broome County (Diocese of Syracuse); March 17 at St. John the Evangelist Church in Newark Valley; March 24 at Church of the Epiphany in Sayre, Pa. (Diocese of Scranton); and March 31 at St. Francis Xavier Church in Friendsville, Pa. (Diocese of Scranton).
