AUGUSTA — The Stations of the Crib, originally scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 6, has been moved to 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 11, and is scheduled to be presented virtually via Zoom with no in-person option.

To register and receive the Zoom link, email Ruth Warren at [email protected].

The Stations of the Crib, similar to the Stations of the Cross offered during Lent, give participants the opportunity to meditate on key moments of faith by using sacred Scripture to tell the story leading up to and immediately following the birth of Christ. Unlike the Stations of the Cross, the Stations of the Crib at Advent focus on the events involving the birth of Jesus: the Annunciation, Joseph’s dream, the angels appearing to the shepherds, the visit of the Magi, and others.

The event is being sponsored by the Maine Diocesan Council of Catholic Women, which aims to unite the Catholic women of Maine in spirituality, leadership, and service, and respond with Gospel values to the needs of the Church and society with direction and action.
