Stations of the Cross — St. Joseph Church, Clarksburg

Intricately painted and ornately framed Stations of the Cross line the side walls of the nave.  The Stations of the Cross depict Jesus’ path toward crucifixion on the Way of Sorrows or “Via Crucis”.

The trefoil-cross topped frames contain floral ornamentation surrounding the number of the Station with golden edging leading down to the inscription of the scene of the Station on the bottom. Pictured here are:

Station Number 9: Jesus Falls the Third Time

Station Number 10: Jesus is Stripped of his Garments

Station Number 11: Jesus is Nailed to the Cross
