34th Annual Good Friday Pilgrimage, An Ecumenical Journey of Reflection and Walking Prayer

The Good Friday Pilgrimage is a journey in which we commenorate the Stations of the Cross. It is tradition, synonymous with Lent, Holy Week, and especially Good Friday, in which we remember the suffering Christ endured on the day He was crucified.

Annually, people of many faiths, join us as one human family to visit 14 urban settings and reflect upon upon Christ's suffering with the most vulnerable among us today.
