Good Friday 2006: Outdoor Stations of the Cross

Each year, on Good Friday, we pray the Stations of the Cross at 14 locations between School and Cross Streets here in Westerly. Members of the community take turns carrying a large wooden cross.
It is an opportunity for us to give a public witness to our Catholic faith, and to meditate on the sufferings our Lord and Savior endured for us.
Many thanks to Elaine Chicoria for providing these great pictures from this year's event!

We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you.
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world!
