Several Richmond area churches are partnering in a Stations of the Cross community walk on Good Friday, March 25.
At nine different stations throughout Downtown, participants will hear a retelling of a series of events at the end of Jesus’ life, according to a release.
The walk, which is open to all people, will begin at 9:30 a.m. at Third Street Bethel A.M.E. Church, 614 N. 3rd St., in Downtown.
Walkers will proceed to Centenary United Methodist Church, Second Presbyterian Church, St. Peter’s Catholic Church, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, City Hall, Hood Temple A.M.E. Zion Church, Sharon Baptist Church and conclude at Third Street Bethel A.M.E. Church.
At each station, walkers will pause for a few minutes to hear a part of the biblical account, reflect and pray.
Different people will carry a cross from one station to the next and pictures will be shown at each station.
“It is a time of reflection, fellowship and celebration of Jesus Christ,” according to organizers.
The Richmond Police Department will escort walkers. Vans also will be available for those who are unable to walk to the nine stations, organizers said.
Participants are urged to wear comfortable shoes and clothing.
