Seven historic Newark churches will take part in the 34th Annual “Way of the Cross” procession on Good Friday, March 30, 2018 from 12 noon to 3 p.m. This ecumenical event, recalling the walk of Jesus to his crucifixion on Golgotha, has been sponsored every year since 1985 by Newark’s Downtown Clergy Association. At each stop, a member of the clergy will give a brief message about one of the “Seven Last Words” of Jesus and participants will sing hymns.
