Every year, the Archdiocese of Winnipeg has a Public Way of the Cross during the morning of Good Friday. Parishes and schools take turns hosting it, and in 2018 St. Vital Parish & St. Maurice School will have the honor of hosting. When we did in 2011, we had close to 2000 people attend! The Way of the Cross is done in the streets, includes: prayer, reflections, music, His Grace Archbishop Gagnon, lots of people (Catholics and non-Catholics alike!), the media, a police escort and more.
One of the traditions of this beautiful, solemn gathering is that the current host parish or school passes the cross to representatives of the following year’s host. If you are interested in being part of the group of representatives who will receive the cross from St. Mary’s Academy, please contact Nicole at 204-803-6556 or firstname.lastname@example.org
