The 39th annual Outdoor Way of the Cross invites people to think about the relevance and importance of the Gospel message in our world today, around the theme of “Called to follow Jesus.” This prayer walk takes place Good Friday, April 19. It begins at Immigration Hall at 10 AM and finishes about noon, a block away at Hope Mission.

Participants walk from station to station, on a route of two kilometres, on paved streets and lanes, so it should not be difficult for most children or people with mobility challenges. Participants are encouraged to check the weather forecast and dress for conditions. Good footwear is important.

Each station offers a reflection on an aspect of the overall theme that highlights both a challenge and a source of hope, woven together with music. Light refreshments are available at the end of the walk, thanks to the hospitality of Hope Mission. Historically, the Way of the Cross is a Christian activity, but everyone is welcome at this event. Participants are invited to bring toiletries or non-perishable food items. There is free street parking available in the area of the start and finish locations.
