The 15 Traditional Stations of the Cross in Glass Mosaic
These Stations of the Cross were commissioned by Father Terry Weber for Saint Micheal’s Parish and blessed on Good Friday, April 2, 2021. The Stations are conceived of as stopping-off points for the congregation to sojourn at these prayerful markers, contemplating the Holy Week journey of Christ into Jerusalem through his suffering, death and resurrection. Aesthetically, the designs are meant to complement three large mosaics embedded in the church floor in 2014. The swirling fields of color in each mosaic panel contain hundreds of pieces of mosaic glass. Interweaving fragments of gestural color and deep contrast signify the Paschal mystery of death and new life. Hung against the muted-red brick grid of the sanctuary walls, these panels serve as small jeweled cairns, measuring only 8 x 10 inches in size. The mosaics were masterfully fabricated by Mosaika Studio in Montreal in collaboration with the artist.
