Reverend Joe Rushton, rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Georgetown, invites the public to join him and parishioners in a Good Friday walk through Georgetown in remembrance of Jesus’ walk to his death on the cross and his resurrection on Easter Sunday which brought new life to those who believe.
The walk through Georgetown will begin after worship at 12:00 noon on Friday, March 29th at the church, located a block off The Circle at the corner of East Pine and Academy Streets.
Participants will share carrying a large cross as Jesus did and will include many sites where prayers will be offered.
Some of the sites are the courts for those who strive to seek justice and for those who intervene and help children and families; the memorials for those who have served and continue to serve our country; service centers for those who cannot care for themselves and for those who assist them in independence; halfway house residents and for those who support them in conquering addictions and homelessness; those who serve at the fire houses to keep us safe; and other churches who feed county residents and help the homeless.
“As we make our way, everyone is invited to join the walk,” commented Father Rushton. “Holy Week is a time when Christians pray and commemorate the suffering and crucifixion of Jesus Christ to redeem humanity from its sins. The Good Friday walk, remembering and retracing the path Jesus walked in the present day, is a time of reflection and prayer for those less fortunate and the many people devoted to helping them, as we remind ourselves of our call to be of humble service to our brothers and sisters. Everyone, regardless of religious preference, is invited.”
