Walk with the Cross

Ecumenical walk will mark Good Friday at churches around the city of Morris

The tradition of a walk following the cross will continue this year on Good Friday, March 29.

It will begin at The Christian Youth Center of Morris at noon. At each location, participants will sing a hymn or chorus, hear the reading of one of the seven last statements that Jesus made during his crucifixion, listen to a very short devotion on that statement, and then sing together as they  leave that house of worship and move on to the next.

There will be refreshments at the First United Methodist Church upon the completion of the Seventh Word.

Everyone is encouraged to participate and to learn more of the depth of our Lord’s gift for us as we have fellowship together and share in the common sacrifice of our Lord.
