Our Lenten Cross was positioned in the foyer at the start of Lent. Each week another object has been added to the display, symbolising events in the last days of Jesus, life before his crucifixion. So far there is a Chalice – the cup of suffering; a bag of coins – He was betrayed for 30 pieces of silver; a whip – he was scourged before his execution; a crown of thorns – which he was made to wear as the soldiers mocked him, along with the purple robe. Next week is Palm Sunday when palm leaves will be added.
