Good Friday, March 25, 2016 - Each year we follow the passion of Christ in the heart of our city, where thousands of people carry their cross every day. Through choral music, Gospel passages, reflections, and our silent procession, we hope to enter more deeply into the events of Good Friday and their meaning for us today. We ask to experience the exceptional Presence of Christ among us as a real answer to the needs of our hearts.
As we process through downtown Chicago on Good Friday, we join with the entire Church, the Church throughout the world and the Church throughout the ages, in remembering what Christ's suffering and death mean - not remembering what it meant - but remembering what it means for us here and now and means for all people in every place and time.
Route: Walking in silence through the heart of Chicago, from the Daley Center Plaza to Holy Name Cathedral.
Schedule: We gather at Daley Plaza at 8:45 AM, and begin promptly at 9:00 AM with an introduction.
The scheduled arrival at Holy Name Cathedral is around 11:30am, and the last station is expected to conclude around noon.
Additional Information: The total length of the walk is approximately two miles. Participants are encouraged to be prepared for fatigue, and for possible inclement weather.
