Via Crucis or The Living Stations of the Cross is the re-enactment of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion. It has taken place for the past 4 decades in the Pilsen neighborhood in Chicago.
It all starts at the Providence of God Church Parish where the members of the Church re-enact the events of the Last Supper. They then proceed down 18th Street where a member carries a cross while being taunted by other members dressed as Roman soldiers.
It all culminates in the crucifixion. It is a process by which Catholics in Chicago and all over the world feel closer to Jesus and his sacrifice during the Good Friday Celebrations.
