Good Friday Procession

18 April 2003

Our Good Friday processional, based on the Stations of the Cross, was held once again this year using symbols and Gospel readings, music and pictures to inspire our thoughts and prayers on this dramatic and powerful day.
We met at 1100 at Capel Court, and walked along the Burgage, up Mill Street, and into St Mary's where everyone was invited to share coffee and hot cross buns.
