Good Friday, a solemn day, provides an opportunity to walk with and for people most in need, hosted by the Greater Rochester Community of Churches / Faith in Action Network. At approximately 9:00 a.m. the walk will proceed with youth carrying the symbolic wooden cross of Christ throughout the neighborhood, stopping along the way to pray and “make holy” sites of violence and places where there is hope and rejuvenation. This year there are seven (7) stops on the 1 and ½ mile pilgrimage. The speakers will meditate and pray on the "seven last words of Christ," and how His ministry still speaks to the hearts of those who are suffering in our neighborhoods today. The walk with take about 1.5 hours.
