Ecumenical Walk for Peace with Stations of the Cross
April 15 @ 11:30 am – 2:30 pm EDT
St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Parish is inviting members of other Catholic parishes and from churches of other Christian denominations, as well as police and public officials, for an ecumenical walk for peace on Good Friday. Participants will gather in the parking lot of Corpus Christi (Our Lady of Americas) Church on East Main Street at 11:30 a.m. and will walk toward St. Michael Church, making fourteen stops along the way in places where violent crimes have occurred for reflection and prayer for peace with the Stations of the Cross. The Way of the Cross will be made present along the way as members of our community, who will be dressed up and playing the different characters of the Passion of Our Lord.
The walk will end at St. Michael Church around 2:30 p.m. Upon conclusion of the walk, all are invited to listen to sacred music at St. Michael Church for 30 minutes and to stay for the Good Friday service at 3 p.m.
Cars can be left at Corpus Christi. A bus will be available for those unable to walk the distance. The bus will follow the walk and stop at each of the stations with the group. The bus will bring all in attendance back to Corpus Christi at the end of the walk, after the 30 minutes of sacred music and again, at the end of the Good Friday service.
