The Stations of the Cross for Children


Available in print or printable PDF editions, and also as printable 11 x 17 posters.

The Stations of the Cross for Children was designed especially for younger children, with colorful illustrations and simple text that introduces them to the Passion of Jesus Christ on their level. Each station takes about two minutes to complete, including about thirty seconds of silent prayer. Optional prayers and Scripture references for each station offer a variety of ways to adapt and expand The Stations of the Cross for Children for older kids. The opening and closing prayers place the Passion in the larger context of Jesus’ mission…and every Christian’s call to continue that mission in the world today.

The Stations of the Cross for Children features “The New Way of the Cross” approved by the  bishops of the Philippines and used extensively there. It is well suited for younger children who are not yet familiar with the story of Jesus’ Passion. It connects the sacrifice on Calvary to the sacrifice of the Mass, and it places that sacrifice within the larger context of the story of salvation. It also prepares children for the Triduum, which begins with our recollection of the Last Supper on Holy Thursday and ends with the Resurrection at the Easter Vigil.
