Our Stations of the Cross Worship Videos, along with the included liturgical script and reflection booklet, will allow you to create an interactive and virtual Stations of the Cross worship experience. Our team recorded a sample of one of the Stations that you can watch below:
In addition to our current Stations of the Cross products (Coloring Posters, Coloring Pages, and a Devotional Guide), our Stations of the Cross Worship Videos present full-color illustrations of the Stations along with background music, scrolling scripture, and visual and sound effects.
What comes with the Stations of the Cross Worship Videos?
- 15 Worship Videos: These fifteen professionally-produced videos feature the full-color Illustrated Ministry Stations of the Cross illustrations with background music, sound effects, on-screen scripture, and prompts that directly tie in with the provided liturgical script. If you use the videos for all fifteen Stations, your service will run for about 45 minutes. In addition to the fifteen videos, we also included two additional videos (for Stations 3 and 11) that only include the sound effects for added flexibility.
- Liturgical Script: This script guides participants through this virtual experience and accompanies the videos. You can read the script while showing the videos in a live (in-person or virtual) worship service. You can also use the script to create a voice-over (read by one person or many different voices) to add to the videos.
- Reflection Booklet: This booklet is designed as an add-on to accompany the virtual experience. It includes a modified version of the script, with additional space to write notes and reflect. You can give the booklet to participants to enrich their experience of the virtual Stations of the Cross. However, you don’t need to use the booklet for your virtual Stations of the Cross to be a meaningful experience.
- Media Kit: We have included graphics to help you advertise your virtual Stations of the Cross experience on social media, in emails, and on your website and newsletter.

Here are a few frequently asked questions that we wanted to give you some quick responses to:
How long is the service?
If you use all fifteen worship videos, the total run time is about 45 minutes.
How many people do I need?
One person can read the scripture verses and the guided scripts for each Station. However, you could also use up to fifteen different people to read scripture for each Station, and up to fifteen different people to read the guided reflection for each Station.
What version of the Stations did you use?
These Stations of the Cross are based on the 14 Scriptural Stations of the Cross, which Pope John Paul II introduced on Good Friday in 1991. They are presented as an alternative to the traditional stations and as a way of reflecting more deeply on the Scriptural accounts of Christ’s passion. We have added a fifteenth Station, which celebrates the resurrection of Jesus, which you may want to save for Easter or omit altogether.
