ST. GEORGE – Today is Good Friday, a day when Christians offer reverence and reflection of Jesus giving Himself over to the Cross, in perfect sacrifice for the sins of people. It is a celebration for those who receive Christ as their Lord and Savior, for because of that sacrifice they embrace a whole relationship with God.
In St. George, Fathers Oscar Martin Pecos and Tai Nguyen, of the St. George Catholic Church, invite all to participate in the sixth Annual Ecumenical Way of the Cross, a walk on foot beginning at 11 a.m. at Bluff Street Park. All are welcome and encouraged to gather early.
At least 15 local churches, representing several denominations, will join in the officiating at the various stations.
The group will proceed from Bluff Street Park one mile down Diagonal to 300 West ending at the St. George Catholic Church. A member from each church will carry the cross from one station to the next. As they stop at each station, the pastors will pray and the faithful will sing.
For these, it is a Good Friday indeed.
