Here’s another Living Stations script…this one from Sr. Marie who read my post about Living Stations scripts just after she got home from coordinating the Living Stations at her parish! Trooper that she is, she immediately sent this script along. Thanks Sr. Marie!

I liked the preparation prayer for all the participants! Definitely will be using that.
Thank you very much for the promotion to sisterhood. However, I am not a nun, but a mother of three teenage girls. Sister Mary Terese Donze, ASC is the one who wrote the “Step Up Close to Jesus” Stations of the Cross for Young People back in 1988. Then, somewhere along the line, a parish made it into a Living Stations of the Cross program. It is very moving because it encourages deeper reflection of each station and applying them to our lives today.
I actually got the script from my brother’s parish in Appleton, WI. The script is posted on the website for the Wisconsin Fox Valley Catholic Youth Minister Association at the following location:

**The one I sent to you was modified to fit our sanctuary and church setting. **
Well then I guess we’ll just refer to you as our sister in Christ!
Does anyone know where I might be able to find a copy of Sr Mary Terese Donze’s Step Up Close To Jesus (a child’s pamphlet describing the Stations of the Cross), as my son misplaced his copy and I would like to replace it for his teacher?
