The Lenten devotion retraces the Passion of Jesus Christ.

Friday, April 14, 2017 12:01 am

During the Lenten season, which culminates with the celebration of Easter on Sunday, many people in the Catholic Church and a few other Christian denominations pray the Stations of the Cross, a devotional that recounts Jesus Christ's Passion from his condemnation to death through his burial in a tomb.

Many of those churches will pray the Stations today, which is Good Friday.

But the 14 stations often also offer an artistic expression of those events in Jesus' life. Here are a sampling of images from Stations of the Cross at three downtown Fort Wayne churches.

The images of the Stations at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception were taken previously by a professional photographer and provided by the Catholic Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend. We took photos of the Stations at St. Mary Mother of God Catholic Church and at Trinity Episcopal Church.

The Cathedral's Stations, which were made in Germany, were installed in 1896 and are among the oldest locally, based on information on the Cathedral's website, http://cathedralfortwayne.org.

The Stations at St. Mary were hand-painted in Poland for the current church, which was dedicated in May 1999. The Stations at Trinity have a sculpted appearance.
