Lent 2021

St Paul's Cathedral is currently closed until further notice, following the declaration of a Major Incident in London due to COVID-19. This will be regularly reviewed, and we will open for private prayer, services and sightseeing when it is safe to do so. 

While the Cathedral is closed, we have produced a number of resources to worship at home during Lent. 

Stations of the Cross

Each Friday during Lent, we will share a video of the Stations of the Cross.. The Stations of the Cross have formed part of Christian devotion during Lent for many centuries and originated when early Christians visited Jerusalem and wanted to follow literally in the footsteps of Jesus, taking the path from Pilate's house to Calvary, pausing for prayer at various points. Eventually those pilgrims brought the practice back to their home countries and ever since then Christians of differing traditions have used this form of devotion. 

Friday 26 February - The Third and Fourth Stations of the Cross


Friday 19 February - The First and Second Stations of the Cross
