23rd Annual Good Friday Walk and Stations of the Cross April 2
From press release
The 23rd Annual Friday Walk and Stations of the Cross will begin at 9 a.m., Friday, April 2, at Emmanuel Episcopal Church 412 N. Church St.
Rockford Urban Ministries organizes the annual walk, which starts from the parking lot of Emmanuel Episcopal Church. Participants are welcome to walk to 14 stations, or stops, along the way, and say a prayer at each stop.
Most of the stops or “stations” concern the city’s outreach to the poor or those in need. Stations include the Public Safety Building the Federal Building, and the Rockford Public Library.
The final stop, Beattie Park, is only one block from the beginning. There the group will commemorate the native peoples, pray for forgiveness for our sins, especially greed and coveting property. The walk is free and open to the public.
Last year the Walk took one hour and 15 minutes, and 50 people attended either part or all of the Walk.
The Walk will take place rain or shine, but in case of rain, Emmanuel Episcopal Church has offered the walkers the use of the church fellowship hall. For more information, call Rockford Urban Ministries at (815) 964-7111.
