The 18th annual “Ecumenical Way of the Cross: A Walk for Justice” will be prayed on Good Friday, April 18, along a 1.5 mile route in downtown Louisville.
The event begins at 9:30 a.m. at the Mazzoli Federal Building at the intersection of Seventh and Chestnut streets. It will end at Founders Square at Fifth and Liberty streets.
According to a news release from ecumenical and peace activist David Horvath, the event is “shaped by the tradition of remembering Jesus’ final moments in life.”
The stations will be held near a number of historical locations in the downtown area, where walkers will reflect “on economic inequality, justice in health, care for the earth, the death penalty, the plight of immigrants and migrant workers, poverty, homelessness, racism” and other issues, the release said.
This Way of the Cross is sponsored by more than two dozen churches and organizations. Among them are:
St. William Church, Ascension Church, Casa Latina, the Episcopal Church of the Advent, the Church of the Epiphany, Good Shepherd Church, CrossRoads Ministry, the Episcopal Churches of Louisville’s Beargrass Deanery, Highland Baptist Church, JustFaith Ministries, the Sowers of Justic Network, the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, Vietnam Veterans Against the War, St. Agnes Church and at least a dozen others.
