Photos: Good Friday Walk for Justice

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.

Sold out for Silver photos

“Sold out for Silver” was the theme of this year’s Ecumenical

four stations in the downtown core to note modern-day crucifixions including environmental degradation,
human trafficking, unjust trials of refugee claimants and homelessness.
