“The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”

Gospel of John: 1:5

The Way of the Cross

Good Friday, April 14, 2017

Start time: 12:15 pm

An ecumenical pilgrimage through one of Canada’s poorest neighbourhoods;

Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside commemorating the places of pain and hope in

our community; Featuring reflection, song and prayer.

The Way of the Cross is an ancient form of meditation, using sight and

movement. Early Christians used to walk the “Via Dolorosa” of Jesus in

Jerusalem, following in the footsteps of our Lord.

All that is required to “make the stations” is a prayerful pondering of the mystery

of Jesus’ suffering, moving from one scene or site to the next – and being open to

making the connections. This is the 30th anniversary of this particular,

ecumenical event.

Stations:

1. worship location (Listening Post) of Our Lady of

Guadalupe Tonantzin Community, 382 Main St

2. Carnegie Centre (Main & Hastings Sts.)

3. Walk 1/2 block West across from INsite/Onsite

4. process to St. James Anglican church

5. process to St. Paul’s RC Church
