Resurrection Lutheran Church of Catawba Island, in collaboration with Saint Thomas Episcopal Church and Trinity United Methodist Church, is hosting a Good Friday Passion Walk on Friday, April 7. The walk will take on a spiritual journey as people walk with Jesus Christ to the Cross.
As the walk proceeds from St. Thomas, 214 E. 2nd St., in downtown Port Clinton at noon — and marching throughout town and back to St Thomas — attendees can reflect on Jesus Christ’s suffering, passion and death in exchange for our eternal life.
The Passion Walk will relive historical events found in St. Matthew 26-27. On the day of Good Friday, Jesus is taken into custody and put on trial. We relive Jesus’ trial, His crucifixion, His suffering, and His death on his way to Calvary in which He defeats sin, and He defeats death and wins victory for us all, freeing us from our sins so that we may have eternal life with Him.
Along the route, participants will stop and pray at eight stations taking turns carrying a large wooden cross. While you walk along, officials ask that you meditate on the road that Jesus took to Calvary, sacrificing Himself for us.
