The Station Churches

The people of the Diocese of Rome have a wonderful tradition known as the Station Churches, in which people gather at a different church in the diocese each day of Lent. Today, it is the Basilica of Santa Sabina.

It is where the Holy Father traditionally leads the celebration.
