Members of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church led a “Stations of The Cross” event on the downtown plaza on Good Friday, April 18 at 5 p.m. Youth members held paintings of each of the 14 stations as others walked by each station to pray and sing.
The event provided a way of remembering and meditating on Jesus Christ from the time he was condemned to death through his scourging, carrying the cross, falling three times, the crucifixion, and laying Him in the tomb. The church plans to make this an annual event.
