Last Chance to Sign up for 'Stations of the Poor: A Prayer Pilgrimage'
April 07, 2011
Don't miss this special Easter weekend opportunity
"Stations of the Poor – A Prayer Pilgrimage" is a rare reflective opportunity for Easter Weekend, being offered in downtown Sacramento by Side-By-Side Ministries With the Homeless.
Modeled on the traditional Stations of the Cross service, which takes participants on a symbolic journey with Jesus through His final hours, Stations of the Poor is a physical journey, taking its pilgrims from place to place in the Loaves & Fishes area where homeless persons find services.
At significant points, participants will stop to reflect and pray.
"We do not go as tourists, but to hear what God has to say to us in each place we stop to pray," says the Rev. Linda Kelly-Baker, founder and director of Side-By-Side, who will guide the experience.
"Stations of the Poor – A Prayer Pilgrimage" will be offered twice: on Good Friday (April 22) at 3 p.m., and on Holy Saturday (April 23) at 10 a.m.
It is a free offering but space is limited, so don't delay if you're interested in taking part. Contact Rev. Kelly-Baker right away at revlinda@SideBySideWithTheHomeless.org, revlinda@ListeningMinistry.org, or at the Side-By-Side office at 916.443.4362.
The walk will be at a pace which should accommodate everyone. There are approximately six stops, and the pilgrimage will take around an hour and a half to complete.
