Ten stations of the cross will be observed. Each station will include scripture, prayer and the singing of a hymn.

This walk returns to and remembers the  way of the cross that our Lord traveled on His journey to the place of His crucifixion.

The Cross Walk will conclude about noon at First United Church of Fulton, 33 S. Third St.

Everyone will be invited to a soup and bread lunch provided by the Board of Deacons of First United Church.

There is no cost for the lunch.

The Cross Walk is sponsored by the Greater Fulton Area Council of Christian Churches.

It is made up of those member congregations that support ecumenical programs that include the annual Michaud Memorial Service and the annual CROP Walk, which raises funds for world hunger and also for local food pantries.
