Parishioners and clergy from the Episcopal Church of the Epiphany, Notre Dame and St. Coleman Roman Catholic Churches; the Middlefield Federated Church and the United Church of Durham will observe the annual “Way of the Cross” on Good Friday, March 29th one of Christianity’s holiest days. Christians observe Good Friday as the day Christ died on the cross at Calvary over two-thousand years ago.
The Way of the Cross is a centuries old religious observance commemorating the walk of Jesus Christ as he made his way to Calvary, his crucifixion and finally his resurrection from the dead on the first Easter morning.
This Ecumenical observance begins at noon at Notre Dame R.C. Church, Main St., Durham. Prayers will be said at each of the fourteen Stations of the Cross along the way. Participants will carry a wooden cross which will be erected on the lawn in front of the Church of the Epiphany. The sanctuary at Epiphany will remain open for prayer from noon on.
All members of the community are welcome to participate.
