Stations Of the Cross Walk - Good Friday


A large group of Parishioners, young and old, met at City hall this morning to set off on a multiple mile walk carrying a large wooded cross. Today is Good Friday, and the group that included (Father Jonathan Molina, Father Uriel Ojeda, Deacon Pat Kearns) wanted to participate in a devotion that would help the individuals connect with Christ's suffering and passion.

As we walked through town, there were a few honks of cheer and support, as well as a few fervent remarks of objection and even hostility. I couldn't help but relate to Christ, his cheers as he entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, and the anger, hostility, and hatred that murdered him. The weather was stormy and cold, but that only helped stage the event of sacrifice and being able to offer up our discomfort for our love of Christ.


 Watch the video to see the Walk through town on this very holy and solemn day.

 Thanks Father Jonathan for a great and spiritual day!
