The Church of Ireland and Roman Catholic Archbishops of Dublin will once again lead a procession of the cross through the streets of Dublin city centre on Good Friday,18 April.
The Ecumenical Walk of Witness, now in its third year, sees Archbishop Michael Jackson and Archbishop Diarmuid Martin carry a cross from Christ Church Cathedral to St Mary’s Pro Cathedral in an act of visible witness on this highly significant day in the Christian calendar.
People of all traditions are invited to come together to pray and join the Archbishops as they journey across the city presenting a public sign of the churches’ work and witness together in the wider community.
Once again the evening will begin with a prayer service in Christ Church Cathedral on Good Friday evening. People will gather at 7.00 p.m. for a short service at 7.15 p.m. before departing at 7.30 p.m. Led by the two Archbishops who will jointly carry the Taizé Cross, they will walk to St Mary’s Pro Cathedral on Marlborough Street where they will join a Taizé prayer service around the cross.
The walk covers a distance of approximately two kilometres.
