BOSTON - April 2, 2015 - PRLog -- Following the ancient tradition of marking the Stations of the Cross on Good Friday, Christians who live and work in the Back Bay area will process in silence through the streets of the Back Bay and South End; stop in reverence at sites in our neighborhood where the city’s poor, ill, and disenfranchised gather and are cared for; reflect on the forces that crucify, and our role in them; and pray together that God’s love be resurrected in us.  This year, those on the Walk specifically will remember and lament the suffering experienced by:
•our neighbors who were displaced from the closed housing and treatment programs on Boston's Long Island;
•the poor whose hope for a better way of life is betrayed by the increasing income gap; and
•people of color whose lives are at the mercy of white-washed official violence.

Everyone is welcome to join the walk, to reflect, pray, remember those who have suffered, to be a witness to our faith, be strengthened in hope and compassion, and give thanks for all those who work to bring healing, safety, and solace in our city.
“This Walk reminds us of our commitment to open our eyes, our hearts, and our lives to injustice and suffering,” said the Rev. Dr. William W. Rich, Senior Associate Rector, Trinity Church, and this year’s Stations of the City organizer.
Walkers are asked to assemble on the Copley Square steps of Trinity Church.

Scheduled stops will include:
•Boston Warm Day Shelter, Old South Church, 645 Boylston St.
•Women’s Lunch Place, Church of the Covenant, 67 Newbury St.
•Bank of America, 440 Boylston St.

The event is sponsored by Trinity Church, Church of the Covenant and Old South Church. All are Welcome.
