Catholic Social Services invites all persons of faith to participate in the 26th annual Good Friday pilgrimage along the Urban Stations of the Cross through downtown Atlanta on April 14.

Participants will walk to 14 Atlanta city sites and reflect upon today’s social issues as they connect with the sufferings endured by Christ in his Passion and death. They will reflect on current issues including the working poor, homelessness, immigration, and others, walk with others in remembrance of Calvary, and pray for the wisdom and courage to act on behalf of the most vulnerable in today’s world.

The interfaith pilgrimage will begin at the state Capitol (on the Washington Street side, between Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Mitchell Street) starting at 9 a.m. and ending at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Crypt at 2 p.m.
