Stations of the Cross at Shrine

BRIDGEPORT—Parishioners of St. Margaret Shrine gathered yesterday afternoon at 2 pm for the Stations of the Cross and Benediction.

Originally schedule as an outdoor Station on the grounds of the Shrine, the event was moved inside because of the cold and windy weather.
