Catholic Diocese honors Good Friday with Stations of the Cross reenactment

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Catholic Diocese held its annual "Passion of the Christ" reenactment as part of Good Friday observances today.

The event started just after noon with a march at the corner of Erskine and Boston.

Parishioners of our Lady of Grace Church walked and meditated on what they refer to as the 14 Stations of the Cross.

Bishop Plácido Rodriquez explained the tradition.

"At the same time it is an act of faith. at the same time it is a prayer in which we are then recognizing our failings and then we ask for forgiveness that we may change the world," he said.

The walk ended at our Lady of Grace Church, at 3111 Erskine.
