Good Friday—Outdoor Way of the Cross-St. Donatus, IA
The stations start at 2pm and if it rains they are held in church
The stations are located behind the church and cemetery. This is the first of its kind in the United States. It was built in 1861 under the direction of Fr. Michael Flamming and consists of 14 brick alcoves situated upwards along the winding Calvary Hill. Each alcove contains an original Parisian lithograph detailing Christ's journey to his crucifixion.

The Pieta Chapel
The chapel stands at the top of the calvary Hill at the conclusion of the Way of The Cross. Built in 1885 in memory of Fr., Flamming, the chapel was modeled after the Chapel de Bilchen at Vianden in Luxembourg. Inside is an altar with a statue of the "Pieta" Mary holding the dead Christ.
