Good Friday cross walk tradition continues

The congregations and people of faith in South Kitsap are gathering Fridday, April 18, for the 22nd Annual Port Orchard Good Friday Cross Walk — an alternative outdoor ecumenical worship that bids welcome to all.

First Lutheran Community Church, Elim Lutheran Church, Spirit of Life Lutheran Church and St. Bede’s Episcopal Church invite their members and the community to walk the cross through town.

The cross walk is open to the public to participate.

The walk will begin at 10 a.m. in front of the First Lutheran Community Church, 2483 Mitchell Rd. SE, and will conclude downtown with a time reflection and sharing.

“People get the feel of what Jesus’ cross could have felt like and that the whole experience of walking the cross out in public engages all our senses, reflections and recollections of what our faith means,” said former pastor George Larson.

Good Friday is a religious day observed primarily by Christians commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The day is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday before Easter Sunday.

For more information about the cross walk, contact First Lutheran Community Church at 360-876-3901 or Spirit of Life Lutheran Church at 360-876-5094.
