Our Lent exhibition in the south transept is Via Crucis by Caroline Waterlow, a touring exhibition made up of 14 images for the Stations of the Cross. They are on paper and use mixed media which includes, charcoal, metal leaf, ink and pastel.

The 14 stations are part of the Lenten catholic tradition originating in Medieval Europe when wars made pilgrimage to the Holy Land too hazardous to undertake. Each station is usually located around the walls of the church. Through these images people could follow the final events of Jesus’ life as he goes to the place of his crucifixion and death. They are intended as stopping places for contemplation, reflection and prayer.

The Exhibition can be viewed in the South Transept from Tuesday 13 February until Thursday 29 March. You are invited to the talks on these thought-provoking images that will be held in the Cathedral every Tuesday throughout Lent, from 20th February until March 20th. The evening will start at 6.30 pm with soup and rolls. The talks start at 7pm.
