Walking With and For Jesus - The Holy Redeemer Way of the Cross
Some 80 worshipers from Holy Redeemer Parish in Winnipeg and parishes from the Archdiocese of St. Boniface and the Ukrainian Archeparchy of Winnipeg demonstrated their faith by walking the Good Friday Way of the Cross.
"Walking with and for Jesus on Good Friday is a tradition at Holy Redeemer," noted the pastor, Br. Arockiadoss Savurimuthu.
The faithful visited the Douglas Mennonite Church, where they were welcomed with the cross in the church sanctuary. "It's a beautiful tradition of Holy Week," said Pastor Don Rempel-Boschman, "Praying together in recognition of the salvation brought by Christ, what's more unifying?"
Then, the group was welcomed by the faithful of St. Anne Ukrainian Catholic Parish, where they prayed to the Virgin and recited some prayers led by Reverend Father Mark Gnutel. The cross was also presented to the senior shut-ins of Donwood Manor. "I have been a deacon at Holy Redeemer for 25 years, and the Way of the Cross has always been part of our parish life. I'm grateful for the work of the Liturgy Committee, the Knights of Columbus and Father Doss."
