Glenn Eure’s Lenten legacy lives on

Published 9:58 pm Friday, March 15, 2019

One of the Christian traditions of the season is the devotion of the Stations of the Cross. Holy Redeemer by the Sea Catholic Parish in Kitty Hawk is blessed with a unique and special set of these Stations.

In 2002, locally renowned artist, the late Glenn Eure, set out to create for his church a very special gift. Drawing inspiration from parishioners and the community, Eure designed his vision of the Stations. Eight years in the making, Eure lovingly and painstakingly hand carved each of the 15 unique Stations, which now adorn the walls of Holy Redeemer by the Sea Catholic Church.

Each Friday during Lent, parishioners at Holy Redeemer gather to pray and reflect on the Stations of the Cross. The simple service begins at 6:30 p.m. each Friday through April 12. The service is followed by a light supper of soup and bread. An offering is taken to help feed those whose plates are empty.
