Good Friday Vigil and Living Stations in Center City

With Holy Week just less than two weeks away, pro-lifers will have vigils outside of the abortion facility.

On Good Friday, April 19th, there will be a group of 150 middle and high school students that will gather outside of Planned Parenthood in the gayborhood section of Philadelphia.

The day begins with a 9 AM prayer vigil at the center. There will be a recitation of the holy rosary, testimonies, and Divine Mercy Chaplet (Good Friday marks the beginning of the Divine Mercy Chaplet. Learn more here: Divine Mercy Novena)

Following the one-hour prayer vigil, the middle and high school students, along with chaperones will break into groups across the city commonly known as the cross-walk. In the cross-walk, the missionaries will walk up to an average Joe and ask them if they have intentions that will be offered during the 3 PM service at the Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral.

At approximately 1 PM, several of the missionaries get dressed up and reenact the living stations of the cross. The procession begins at St. Patrick’s at 20th and Locust and ends on the south lawn of Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral.

If you have not taken part in the living stations, this would be a tremendous opportunity for everyone to follow Jesus on his journey to Calvary.
