CBC Manitoba: Hundreds mark Good Friday with procession, prayers at University of Manitoba

March 29, 2024 — 

Hundreds gathered at the University of Manitoba campus on Friday morning to take part in an yearly Good Friday tradition.

The 35th annual Public Way of the Cross — a two-kilometre procession hosted by a different parish in the Catholic archdiocese of Winnipeg each year — was held at St. Paul’s College. It’s the first time the event has been held at a university campus, one of its organizers said.

“It’s our chance to show to the Manitoba community that we’re here,” said Christopher Adams, the rector of St. Paul’s College, a Catholic higher educational institution located at the U of M, on Thursday.
