Rochester parish invites all to a Good Friday walk for peace

All are welcome to join St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Parish in Rochester for a Good Friday ecumenical walk for peace.

Participants will gather in the parking lot of Corpus Christi Church/Our Lady of Americas, 864 E. Main St., at 11:30 a.m April 15. From there, participants will walk toward St. Michael Church on North Clinton Avenue, making 14 stops along the way in places where violent crimes have occurred. At each stop, participants will pause for reflections and prayers for peace with the Stations of the Cross. Members of the community will be dressed up to play the different characters of the Passion.

The walk is expected to reach St. Michael Church around 2:30 p.m. There will be sacred music inside the church before the Good Friday service at 3 p.m.

Participants can leave their cars at Corpus Christi. A bus, which will follow the procession for those unable to walk the whole way, will take participants back to their cars immediately following the walk, after the sacred music and again after the Good Friday service.

Those interested in joining in the walk are encouraged to sign up at http://tinyurl.com/WalkforPeaceRochester by April 4 so that the parish can plan for buses and T-shirts.

For more information, contact Father Daniel Ruiz at 585-210-3024 or email fr.daniel.ruiz@dor.org.
