Crucifixion reflection - then celebrations

LOCAL Christians combined for reflection and prayer on Good Friday as they retraced the various aspects of Jesus Christ's journey as he carried his cross to his crucifixion.

Local Christians are reflected in a shop window as they pray at one of the stations representing Jesus Christ's journey to his crucifixion.

THE ecumenical community Stations of the Cross spanned more than one block of the shopping centre after a gathering in Victoria Square.

Good Friday marks the most solemn day in the Christian church as parishioners of many denominations mourn his death on the cross before celebrating his resurrection on Easter Sunday.

The Stations of the Cross or the Way of the Cross, also known as the Way of Sorrows or the Via Crucis, refers to a series of images depicting Jesus Christ on the day of his crucifixion with accompanying prayers.

The images adorned shop windows and the faithful walked from image to image, in order, stopping at each station to say the selected prayers and reflections.
