Although the Church at Horseshoe Bay has instituted a new Stations of the Cross feature this Easter season, the Highland Lakes communities share three more of the walks through the passion of Christ's crucifixion and resurrection that have become a shared tradition over the years.

Two are located at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, 105 Ranch to Market Road 1431 East, and a third is found at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, 10063 Cypress Mill Road, in Cypress Mill, just across Llano and Burnet County lines into Blanco County.
