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 worshipped with the Occupy movement.
The theme for 2017 is Breaking Barriers.
This year, the walk begins and ends at the Church of the Holy Trinity and the crowd moves as a procession to stations around the city within walking distance, each set with a different aspect of the theme. Bishop Riscylla Shaw will speak at the closing station.
At the end of the walk back at the church there is a short reflection followed by a light meal of soup and bread.
Everyone is welcome.
