This past Good Friday, March 30, 2018, Holy Trinity hosted parts of the Ecumenical Good Friday Walk for Justice.
About the walk: “The Ecumenical Good Friday Walk for Justice began 35 years ago. Each year, the ecumenical planning team creates a map of stations to lift up current struggles. Over the years, we have stopped at the courthouse steps to protest racial profiling, at bank towers to repent valuing profits over people, and in back alleys to hear the stories of the poor. We have stood with refugees, advocated for missing and murdered Aboriginal women, and worshiped with the Occupy movement. ”
You are invited to join us for the whole Easter Story or just what speaks to your soul.
