The Stations of the Cross for Children (printable PDF)

The Stations of the Cross for Children is written in simple language geared toward introducing younger children to the story of the Passion for the first time. It uses the list of stations recently approved by the bishops of the Philippines; this version begins with the Last Supper and ends with the Resurrection, making it a useful preparation for the rhythm of the Triduum.

The download includes a printable PDF and a PowerPoint presentation. Each of the stations in the PDF version prints on an individual sheet of letter-sized paper and includes: a work of sacred art; a reference to the relevant Scripture passage; a super-simple description of the episode recalled by the station; a prompt to thirty seconds of silent prayer; and a super-short prayer that connects reflection on the Passion to prayer and action in the world.

The PowerPoint slideshow includes the name of each station, the artwork, and a Scripture citation. It does not include music or automatic timing. A family leader can use the PDF version to narrate each slide in the PowerPoint presentation.
