Hospice unveils Stations of the Cross garden

A special place of tranquillity and reflection has been created by staff and volunteers in the beautiful woodland gardens at St. Josephs Hospice in Thornton.

A new 'Stations of the Cross Garden' has been installed to commemorate the stages of Jesus Christ's final journey, creating a mini pilgrimage of reflection and meditation around 14 stations of devotion, beginning with Jesus' condemnation.

The new garden was unveiled and blessed on Thursday, 29 June 2017, by Bishop Tom Williams in the presence of local school children, Hospice trustees, staff and volunteers and then opened to the public on Friday, 30 June 2017.

A special service of reflection will also take place in the Stations of the Cross garden during the Hospice's 55th Anniversary Garden Party, on Saturday, 8 July 2017, so it is hoped that lots of people will visit it then.

George Foster, chair of trustees at St. Joseph's Hospice, said:- "We are all incredibly proud to be able to unveil this wonderful new garden which will offer members of our community, as well as patients and their families, a special place to visit and reflect in the peaceful woodlands at the Hospice. We like to thank those individuals who contributed towards the garden and we look forward to many people coming along to visit it over the coming weeks, months and years ahead."
