It is a solemn night of centuries-old tradition.

Good Friday is observed Christians commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. Friday night, faithful around the world, and here in Duluth, are conducting processions. Starting at the College of St. Scholastica and ending at the Duluth Cathedral of Our Lady, the procession symbolizes Christ's walk to his crucifixion.

Sharon Mollerus, who helped organize this year's walk says, "This is a special time to remember a great day a very important event in all of our lives and we do that first of all so we remember but also so others can consider that possibility."

The Way of the Cross procession is sponsored by a Catholic lay movement called Communion and Liberation.
