A show of faith

WATSONVILLE — Hundreds of people packed Ramsay Park Friday for the annual Stations of the Cross ceremony, which depicts the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.


The celebration begins on Thursday, with the Washing of the Feet ceremony, followed by the Stations of the Cross ceremony, Holy Saturday and then Easter.

The practice began in the late fourth century when pilgrims flocked to the Holy Land from all parts of the world to visit Jesus’ homeland.

During the time of the crusades, roughly 1095-1270, it became popular for pilgrims visiting the holy land to walk the path Jesus walked during his crucifixion.
