Andrew Wilson, 15, from Royalmont Academy in Mason, carries a cross to Holy Cross-Immaculata (HCI) parish in Mt. Adams on Good Friday, March 25, 2016.

The Way of the Cross for Justice, a Good Friday observance sponsored by a broad spectrum of faith-based groups, will begin at noon April 14 on Fountain Square with reflections on social issues, prayerfully connecting the suffering of Jesus with that brought about by injustice today.

Participants will then process to the Freedom Center for further reflection and a closing bread service from 1:30 to 2 p.m.

This prayerful gathering will reflect on the death penalty, economic justice, care for creation, racism, and immigration, with special prayers for Maribel Trujillo and her family.

In addition to the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, sponsors and supporting organizations include the Archdiocesan Office for African American Pastoral Ministries, AMOS, Bellarmine Chapel, the Archdiocesan Catholic Social Action Office, Christ Church Cathedral, the Congregation of Divine Providence, the Economics of Compassion Initiative, the Intercommunity Justice and Peace Center, Peaslee Neighborhood Center, Seton High School, Archbishop McNicholas High School, Shiloh United Methodist Church at Price Hill, the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, St. Monica-St. George Parish, St. Ursula Academy, and Youth Educating Society (IJPC).
