PARKERSBURG, W. Va. (WTAP) - Christians around the world are observing Good Friday, that includes here in Parkersburg.
People gathered at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church this afternoon for the annual inter-faith Good Friday Walk.
The walk which is led by the walking of the cross, symbolizes both the walk Jesus took holding the cross as well as the pilgrimage Christians made to visit holy sites.
The group traveled between several churches in Parkersburg as well as walking up Market Street.
The event, while somber leads up towards the Christian holiday of Easter which will occur this Sunday.
