to Good Friday’s Stations of the Cross
at the Independence Square
The general Public is invited to a special celebration of the Stations of the Cross on Good Friday morning at 8.00a.m. around the Independence Square in Basseterre. The Catholic Church traditionally celebrated Stations of the Cross in this particular place following the example of John Paul II who celebrated the Stations in the Roman Colosseum - a place of suffering of Christians in the early centuries of Christianity.
This year as we celebrate the 200 years of the Abolition of Transatlantic Slave Trade we want to reflect especially on the humiliation and suffering of many slaves who were priced and auctioned on what today is called the Independence Square.
Please join us at this celebration.
