What is the EDK?
It is a new form of the spiritual activity, which was created as an answer of the need to live challenges. In practice it is a night walk usually leading to the sanctuary. Every year thousand of people in the Lent in Poland and all over the world take the challenge to overcome the route of approximately 40 kilometers in silence at night ( individually or in the group). At the very beginning they are given the map and the specially written meditation of the 14 Stations of the Cross on this occasion.
The essence of the EDK is crossing each other, the determination to endure hardship and abandonment of comfort to be able to truly meet with God. Extreme Way of the Cross is a physical and spiritual exercise , which can change each.
