Living Stations of the Cross – Scripts

I’ve put out a request for scripts/outlines for the Living Stations of the Cross for Lent and so far have received 3 samples. Thanks! I’m only passing along 2 of them at the moment, as the third was not really a living stations. Remember, if you have a script or outline for the Living Stations of the Cross, please attach it (as a Word file or PDF) to an email and send it to me at

Here are the 2 scripts I’ve already received (in PDF format)…



ALSO, I’m thrilled that my Lenten FAQ video has been so well received! It already has nearly a coupla-hundred hits on YouTube and my blog had a record high for visits yesterday!  I’ve also received numerous emails telling me that folks plan on forwarding it to their catechists or are printing out the script to distribute or publish in a newsletter or bulletin.

  1. I just wish to thank you for the scripts on the stations of the cross. They’ll go a long way to move the hearts of people in my Parish (St. Joseph’s Anglophone parish Yaounde, Cameroon), especially the youths.God bless you.

    • SAMA Antonio, you’re very welcome. Thanks for your kind thoughts and I wish you well during this wonderful Lenten season!

  2. Thank you so much. I have been searching for a script for our elementary R.E. program for quite awhile. Thank you!

  3. This script will go a long way in assisting us with our Lenten drama this year….thanks very much….

  4. I was surfing the internet looking for suitable scripts for the Passion Play, that my parish priest has requested our team to put together for this year – 2011, GOOD FRIDAY services, and I stumbled upon your site. THANK YOU VERY MUCH …GOD BLESS +

  5. We adapted the script to Spanish for our parish. We were able to present the living stations of the cross last year and it truly was a moving experience, not only for those in attendance, but for those bringing to life His Passion. Even though it had been rehearsed time after time, to truly live each moment that evening for our parish community was a true blessing and great moment of reflection/prayer. I am so glad I found this when searching for a script! God bless!

  6. Joe, the living stations of the cross scripts are wonderful. Can I order multiple copies for each student. Thank you

    • Damaris, you can use those as you see fit. There is nothing to order…I’m simply making them available for general use.

  7. Hi Joe,
    I’m the lead lady of a Youth Group in my church. I’m planing to do the Living Stations of the Cross at one of our camp. I was grateful when I found this. I love the songs and the format that was in this script. Thank you.

  8. Good Morning
    Is there any way that I can get a printable versions of the living stations. Our school will be doing them on Holy Thursday and I have never been in charge before. I NEED HELP

    • Hi Kathleen and thanks for your question. Unfortunately, I know of no other versions available than what I offer in the post. Your best bet is to use these to create your own version and then print them for local use. Sorry I can’t be of more help.
