A Contemplative Treasure at Ossining Parish
CHRIS SHERIDAN
Two pilgrims pause before the second station, Jesus Accepts His Cross.

The outdoor Stations of the Cross at St. Augustine parish, Ossining, offer a profound Lenten meditation on Jesus’ passion, death and resurrection.

The stations, overlooking the Hudson River, were conceived and designed by the Italian artist Nino Di Simone.

The scenes in the 15 stations were sculpted in terra cotta, cut into smaller tiles, and then glazed and fired.

Cardinal John O’Connor, then-Archbishop of New York, blessed the garden, dedicated to “our mothers,” on March 21, 1997.
