The Cochrane and Area Community Walk of the Cross brought together hundreds of people on Good Friday to reflect upon the journey of Jesus Christ from the time he entered Jerusalem to his crucifixion.

Together, they heard scripture from the Passion of Jesus Christ according to St. Luke, sang, and prayed as they walked through the Historic Downtown to the Community Cenotaph. A cross was erected at the cenotaph and will stay there until Sunday. 

"It was a bit a cool morning, but it's warm in our hearts," says Pastor Matthew Butler of King's Gate.

This was the 40th annual Good Friday Procession to witness publicly the common faith of the participating congregations and organizations.

He says it's exciting to come together again after the walk was interrupted for two years by the pandemic.

There were 12 stations along the walk this year.
