Isn’t the ‘Way of the Cross’ the way of every person’s life?  Doesn’t every life have suffering, falls, hurts, rejections, condemnations, death, burial ……and resurrection?

Each FRIDAY IN LENT at 12noon in ST MARY’s MELLOR everyone is welcome to come and walk with Mary the ‘Way of the Cross’. As we walk through these stations we see through Mary’s eyes what Jesus was going through on the way to Calvary.                                             Fr Roland
