Each Friday during Lent, students from local Catholic schools will lead the “Way of the Cross for Young People” at one of four cemeteries in Louisville. The stations begin at 1 p.m. and cover a distance of 300-400 yards. The prayer walk is based on a service prayed by Pope Francis on Good Friday in 2018. Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz, along with students from St. Bernard School, led the service Feb. 28 at Calvary Cemetery.

Following is the schedule for the remaining Fridays in Lent:

  • On March 6, students from Sacred Heart Academy will lead the Stations of the Cross at St. Louis Cemetery, 1167 Barret Avenue. Participants will gather at the priest section behind the flagpole.
  • On March 13, students from St. Martha School will lead the Stations of the Cross at St. Michael Cemetery, 1153 Charles Street. Participants will gather at the priest section.
  • On March 20, students from Holy Trinity School will lead the Stations of the Cross at St. John Cemetery, located at the intersection of 26th and Duncan streets, with the entrance on Duncan Street.
  • On March 27, students from Our Lady of Lourdes School will lead the Stations of the Cross at Calvary Cemetery, 1600 Newburg Road. Participants will gather at the intersection next to the office parking area.
  • On April 3, students from Corpus Christi Classical Academy will lead the Stations of the Cross at St. Michael Cemetery, 1153 Charles Street. Participants will gather at the priest section.
