This ecumenical event, shaped by the tradition of remembering Jesus' final moments in life, the "stations" is held near a number of locations in the downtown area.
It is an opportunity to remember and pray for those caught in situations of oppression or suffering today.
The 1.5 mile walk will stop at 14 locations throughout downtown, reflecting on economic inequality, justice in health, care for the earth, the death penalty, the plight of immigrants/migrant workers, poverty and homelessness, racism, and many more.
