Diocesan Mausoleum to host Stations of the Cross

Jesus, Bread of Life Cemetery and Mausoleum, Mount Laurel, will hold Stations of the Cross for the Souls in Purgatory during the six Fridays of Lent beginning March 8 at 3 p.m. Sponsored by the Department of Catholic Cemeteries, faithful are invited to pray and reflect on the suffering journey of Christ as he traveled on the Way of the Cross to his Death on Calvary.

The Church teaches that the souls in Purgatory undergo a process of purification which includes suffering. Through prayer and sacrifice by the living and the Communion of Saints, their pain and ours may be relieved.

Stations will take place inside the Mausoleum on the following Fridays: March 8, 15, 22, 29; April 5 and 12. Each Friday’s Stations will begin promptly at 3 p.m.

Jesus, Bread of Life Cemetery and Mausoleum is located at 3055 Fostertown Road, Mount Laurel. For further information, contact Maria Guzman at 856-317-6400, or mguzma@dioceseoftrenton.org.
