Good Friday Walk with the Cross
March 30, 2018
Our Lady of Grace Youth Group is hosting a “Walk with the Cross on Good Friday.” The walk will start at 12:45 pm from the Church. We will walk in the premises of the Church carrying a huge wooden cross. During the walk we will stop at fourteen stations in the Church premises to meditate and reflect on the Stations of the Cross. The Stations of the Cross will be over around 2:30 pm.
Good Friday Walk with the Cross is a beautiful way of uniting ourselves, our struggles and our crosses with the passion of Christ. It is also a spiritual way of accompanying Him on His way to Calvary. This devotion is open to all our parish families and parishioners of all age. Please come and join us. We are looking for volunteers to read a reflection at each station. If you are interested in participating or reading a reflection or have any questions, please contact Fr. Kumar at 203-377-0928 or visit our parish website: www.olgstratford.com. You may also email Fr. Kumar at FrKumar@olgstratford.com.
