Abstract

Staff and students of The University of Notre Dame Australia’s Fremantle Campus will join with members of the community once again to celebrate Easter in what has become an important tradition on the campus.

Each year, the University hosts a special Stations of the Cross service which follows the fourteen Stations depicting the significant events in the last days of Jesus’ life.

Campus Minister, Tom Gannon explains: “Following the Stations of the Cross has been a tradition each Lenten season at Notre Dame for the past 10 years.

“People of all ages and cultural backgrounds gather to reflect on Christ’s last days and in particular what each Station of His journey means to them.”

Notre Dame’s service will be led by the Seminarians from Redemptoris Mater in Morley who will share the story of each Station through song.

The unique bronze Stations displayed in the courtyards of the Fremantle Campus were a gift from the late Diane Wansbrough, a Governor of the University, and created by one of Australia’s foremost contemporary artists, Peter Schipperheyn.

“Easter is a time that unites all Christians. It is wonderful that we are able to share our unique Stations with the community and to promote the significance of them in the Church’s history,” Mr Gannon said.

“We look forward to welcoming all to our Campus for this special event on the University’s calendar.
