LANSING, Ill. (March 4, 2018) – Trinity Lutheran Church and St. Ann Catholic Church are planning a Stations of the Cross Prayer Remembrance Walk scheduled for Good Friday, March 30, 2018. The commemoration is open to the public and is planned with the assistance of the Mayor’s office and the Lansing Police Department.

Participants will gather outside the front door of St. Ann’s Catholic Church (3010 Ridge Road) at noon. Congregants will walk south on Chicago Road and continue westbound on Ridge Road, stopping along the way to remember each of the traditional 14 stations of the cross. The walk will conclude at Trinity Lutheran Church (2505 Indiana Avenue) with a short prayer service.

At last year’s Good Friday prayer walk, Pastor John Holyer from Trinity, Fr. William McFarlane from St. Ann, and Rev. Michael Eberly from First Baptist Church of Lansing took turns reading the stations as volunteers carried a cross and members of the community followed in prayer.

Ministers in Lansing are invited to participate in this year’s ceremonies as well.

For more information, call Pastor Holyer at (708) 474-7997.
