“Awaken to Grace: Embracing the World in Its Hurts” is the theme of the 2022 Outdoor Way of the Cross in Edmonton. Due to continuing concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s walk will be presented virtually, in video format. The video will be available to the public at 10:00 a.m. on Good Friday, April 15, through YouTube and on the Way of the Cross website.
“The video invites us to think about the relevance and importance of the Gospel message in our world today in relation to the theme,” says Bob McKeon, a member of the event’s organizing committee.
2022 is the 42nd anniversary of the Outdoor Way of the Cross event in Edmonton. This year’s theme explores issues in the context of Matthew 25:35-40, which speaks of the need for compassion and care for a suffering world. In the video, local leaders contribute reflections on hunger, Indigenous issues, marginalization, health inequities and more. All people concerned about social justice are invited to view the video, no matter their faith.
