“Do you see me? What will you do?” Good Friday Pilgrimage

 The 36th annual Ecumenical Good Friday Pilgrimage (Urban Way of the Cross) sponsored by the Catholic Archdiocese of Atlanta’s Office of Justice & Peace Ministries is  Friday, March 25,  9 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

This year’s theme is Do you see me? What will you do? We will begin with an opening reflection by Catholic Archbishop Wilton Gregory and then proceed on a walking prayer that includes scripture readings, reflections, prayers, and music as we remember the passion of Christ and the social injustices in our world today.

The journey is meant to challenge people to see those on the margins whom we so very often ignore or fail to see. Each of the 14 stops along the way will provide an insightful reflection on a segment of our population right here in the greater Atlanta area that suffers from injustice and relegation to the shadows. We will end with a reflection on building the Kingdom here on earth by making the decision to do something about those we meet along the journey that day; a true Christian call to action that asks us to really live our faith.

Gather at 8:45 at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, 48 Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive, SW, Atlanta 30303. Pilgrimage will conclude at the crypt of Martin Luther King, Jr. The 2 mile route is considered wheel chair accessible, but please keep in mind that not all of the sidewalks along the route are smooth or wide. Buses will be available to return participants to the start point.

Please contact Kat Doyle, Director of Justice & Peace Ministries, at kdoyle@archatl.com for more information or to volunteer. ALL are welcome
