OSWEGO, NY – The Salvation Army Centers throughout New York State invite the community attend Holy Week and Easter Services this year.
“Across upstate New York, Salvation Army Centers are reaching out to those burdened with hunger, financial concerns, family issues or unemployment and inviting them to share the Passion of Good Friday to the joy of Christ’s resurrection on Easter Sunday,” said Major Karla Clark, general secretary (chief operating officer) of the Empire State Division of The Salvation Army. “Christ’s death enabled us to re-connect with our God. We invite those who feel separated from God to join us.”
On Good Friday March 29, the Oswego County Salvation Army will be showing the movie, “The Passion” at 6:30 p.m.
The Salvation Army in Oswego is located at 73 W. Second St.
