Holy Family Church holds annual shadow station event
ONTONAGON - Students at the Holy Family Church in Ontonagon perform the shadow stations of the cross each Lenten season.
Behind a scrim with illuminated light, the students enact the 14 stations of Christ's death on the cross.
It begins with his condemnation to death and concludes with his placement in the tomb. The presentation is traditionally performed the Friday before Holy Week.
Each station is accompanied with a dialogue read by two of the students which connects the station and suffering with the lives of young and old.
