FULTON, NY – On April 18 the annual Good Friday Cross Walk, sponsored by the Greater Fulton Area Council of Christian Churches, will begin at 10:30 a.m. in the parking lot of Holy Trinity Parish, 309 Buffalo St.
Walkers will gather for prayer and the singing of hymns as they take turns carrying a large wooden cross in the downtown section of the city of Fulton.
This annual walk returns to and remembers the ‘way of the cross’ that our Lord traveled on his journey within the city of Jerusalem to the place of his crucifixion.
The Cross Walk will conclude about noon at its final destination, First United Church of Fulton, 33 S. Third St.
Everyone who has taken part in the walk will be most welcome to a soup and bread Luncheon 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 and the annual fall season
CROP Walk which raises funds for world hunger, and also for local food pantries.
