On Good Friday, March 29 this year, congregants of St. Nicholas Parish conducted the Neighborhood Stations of the Cross. The two-to-three-hour walk, began and ended at St. Nick’s. It recreates the Catholic Via Dolorosa, or 14 stations of the cross that commemorate events in the last day of Jesus’s life, from the time he was condemned to death until he was laid in the tomb. More than 200 people of all ages participated this year in the service, conducted in Spanish, English and French, and which stopped for prayers and meditation at various places in the southwest Evanston neighborhood. Residents, familiar with St. Nick’s procession, often gather to greet the celebrants and walk with them a few blocks to the next station.
