HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – On Good Friday, many in Huntsville began their Easter celebration with the “Stations of the Cross” tradition.

It takes place annually along the Aldridge Creek Greenway. People involved in “Stations of the Cross” move between 14 stops that involve scripture and stories about the path Jesus took to the crucifixion.

The lineup of who organizes “Stations of the Cross” speaks volumes about its meaning.   Many churches and denominations help organize the event. There are lessons along the way that teach not only the history of journey Jesus took, but for the people today who participate in “Stations of the Cross.”

Reverend Fred Clemens says “God empowered Christ with what his mission was. And as I walk it each station is designed to show like what God has in the past and more important what God is doing now.”

“Stations of the Cross” has been a Huntsville tradition for over a decade.
