Stations of the Cross Word Search

This word search from The Religion Teachers Lenten Activity Pack requires students to know the names of each station in order to find the clues in the cross. The words together make the shape of a cross.

The Way of the Cross Journal

This multi-page worksheet invites students to meditate and pray at each station by imagining what Jesus would say to us about his experience and the response in prayer we might have for him. This method of praying the stations is based on Clarence Enzler’s popular Everyone’s Way of the Cross. This resource is also available to members.

Stations of the Cross Coloring Pages

Important: If you choose to spend valuable class time coloring pictures of the Stations of the Cross, be sure to use the pictures to actually pray the Stations.

Here are some teaching ideas to take coloring to the next level:

  • Distribute one printable Stations of the Cross coloring sheets to each student. Have them color and decorate the sheet however they like. Then, post each sheet around the room and go through the Way of the Cross with the students using their pictures as the stations.
  • Laminating the coloring sheets at the beginning of Lent will make them last much longer!
  • Use the coloring sheets as an introduction to a more in-depth activity. Have students color the paper together, then have them act out or demonstrate the stations as well.
  • Make the coloring prayerful experience. With each color they choose, have them recite the prayer we pray during the Stations: “We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
