Starting at St. Joseph's Cathedral, more than 100 people of all ages took part in a “Good Friday Meditation on the Way of the Cross” through scripture and song.

The Stations of the Cross take place in the heart of cities where millions of people carry their crosses every day.

Participant Emma Grave said, “As I walk around the city, I think about what it means for Jesus to save me. So being able to pray while walking around the city is a really great experience for me.'' he said. Carrying the cross each year reflects the meaning of Easter
