From April 10, to 14, Iona Hope is offering an opportunity to walk the Fourteen Stations of the Cross, in place of the Labyrinth. The Church will be open each day for those to individually come in and in quiet prayer walk the Stations of the Cross.

As a member of the church explains, "Guests will see 14 pictures placed around the Sanctuary, depicting certain moments with Jesus as he is led to be crucified. Similar to the Labyrinth, you can come in and walk each station on your own, prayers will be provided. If you have never walked the stations of the Cross, you are encouraged and welcome to come and take this journey as part of your Holy Week experience."
