Continuing a Good Friday tradition, parishioners gathered downtown for the annual Walk with the Cross.


Participants took turns carrying the cross to several churches, where the group would stop to read scripture, pray and reflect.

The event has been held for more than a decade as a way to remember Jesus’ crucifixion and death prior to his resurrection on Easter Sunday.

Similar processions are held during Holy Week in communities around the world.
