The 38th annual Outdoor Way of the Cross invites people to think about the relevance and importance of the Gospel message in our world today, around the theme of “Speaking Truth to Power.”
Each station offers a reflection on an aspect of the overall theme that highlights both a challenge and a source of hope, woven together with music.
Historically, the Way of the Cross is a Christian activity, but everyone is welcome at this event. Participants walk from station to station, on a route of two kilometres from immigration Hall to Hope Mission. The streets and lanes are paved, so it should not be difficult for most children or people with mobility challenges. Participants are encouraged to check the weather forecast and dress for conditions. Good footwear is important. Light refreshments are available at the end of the walk, thanks to the hospitality of Hope Mission. Participants are invited to bring toiletries or non-perishable food items.
There is free street parking available in the area of the start and finish locations. There is a public Facebook event page called “Good Friday Outdoor Way of the Cross” that can be used to invite people to take part. More information: Linda (780-466-6327) or Jim (780-218-6989). POSTER
