On Friday, April 2nd, the annual Good Friday Cross Walk, sponsored by the Greater Fulton Area Council of Christian Churches, will begin in the parking lot of Holy Trinity Parish, 309 Buffalo Street, Fulton at 10:30 a.m. Walkers will gather for prayer and the singing of hymns around a large wooden cross which will be carried to many locations in the downtown section of the city of Fulton. This annual Walk remembers the Ã¢â‚¬Ëœway of the crossÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ that our Lord traveled on his journey to the place of his crucifixion.
The Cross Walk will conclude sometime before noon by arriving at its final destination, First United Church of Fulton, 33 South Third Street. Everyone who has taken part in the Walk will be welcomed to a Noon Luncheon made up of meatless soup and bread provided by the Board of Deacons of First United Church. Both the Cross Walk and the following Luncheon are open to the general public to take part. There is no cost for the Luncheon.
The Greater Fulton Area Council of Christian Churches is made up of those member congregations who support ecumenical programs, including the annual Michaud Memorial Service, the Community Thanksgiving Worship service, and the very successful annual CROP WALK which raises funds for world hunger, and for local food pantries.
