Residents of St. George and surrounding communities from a wide variety of faiths joined Friday to commemorate the Stations of the Cross by walking approximately one mile from Bluff Street Park down Diagonal Street to St. George Catholic Church. Along the way, the group stopped 14 times, and at each stop heard about an event in the final hours of Jesus' life as he carried the cross to his crucifixion. This walk is hosted each Good Friday in St. George and throughout the world, including in the old city of Jerusalem. Though it is a Catholic tradition, the event in St. George is hosted by the Interfaith Council as a way of bringing Christians of many faiths together to commemorate what is considered to be "Good Friday," the day of Jesus' crucifixion and sacrifice for mankind, and begins the weekend that culminates Sunday with Easter, the resurrection of Jesus.
