DOWNTOWN GOOD FRIDAY PRAYER WALK :: The 35th annual Harrisonburg downtown ecumenical Good Friday prayer walk, based on the “Stations of the Cross,” will be held Friday, April 15, from noon to 1 p.m. The walk begins at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church and ends at St. Stephens United Church of Christ, stopping at a total of 10 downtown churches and public buildings. Led by someone carrying a large cross, the group stops at each station where a member of the “Biblical Storytellers Guild” will tell the appropriate passage from the Gospel of John and a local pastor responds with a prayer. This is a contemplative, communal and spiritual practice of shared ecumenical worship and witness that has been going on every year in downtown Harrisonburg for 35 years. The route is accessible for wheelchairs and strollers.
