Waterloo churches honor good friday with way of the cross procession

(KWWL) -

Churches all across the area are observing Good Friday today.

Zion Lutheran church in Waterloo hosted its annual "Way of the Cross" procession this afternoon.

A total of seven local churches participated.

Methodists, Catholics, Lutherans, Baptists, and Congressionals were all among them.

Tim Ensworth, the senior minister at First Congressional Church of Christ, says it's a uniting front.

"Reminds us of a different way-a way the world often takes," said Ensworth. "That it's not by force that we get what matters. But it's by giving, it's by compassion, by love, by giving ourselves. And that's what we remember today-and try to encourage each other to do."

Churchgoers walked one mile from Zion Lutheran to Sacred Heart church. A service was held at Sacred Heart this afternoon.

Holy week celebrations will end this Easter Sunday.
