Via Crucis or The Living Stations of the Cross is the re-enactment of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion. It has taken place since 1977 in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago.

It is a process by which Catholics in Chicago and all over the world feel closer to Jesus and his sacrifice during the Good Friday Celebrations.
