At Noon: CROSS WALK – Rain or Shine
For more than 10 years, a small but prayerful group has gathered for a Cross Walk starting at noon on Good Friday. Beginning where the Pinellas Trail crosses Albert St., we walk through downtown Dunedin, stopping at various places for the traditional 14 Stations of the Cross, and ending in the nave of Good Shepherd for final prayers and a time for meditation. We take turns carrying a large wooden cross and the laypeople take the lead in reading the scripture verses, meditations, and prayers.
Although we get plenty of quizzical looks, we also receive several expressions of thanks, and sometimes passersby will join in. This is an ecumenical event suitable for all Christians. We welcome any and all to join us. There is no need to sign up, just show up shortly before noon on the Trail at Albert St. People may park at the church. Service booklets will be available.
There is also a Stations of the Cross Service in the church, beginning at noon, if you prefer to stay indoors.
At 6:30 PM: LIVE STATIONS OF THE CROSS
A Powerful and Moving Portrayal of Jesus’ Last Hours, we gather in darkness and shadows, pain and repentance to witness the Passion of our Lord, presented with somber intensity. Live performers reenact emotional scenes from Gospel readings. The meaningful service concludes with prayer before the Cross.
