Annual Good Friday Walk

Annual Good Friday Walk 2023 in Longmont

For 23 years now, this is a great opportunity for families to be involved in our Lord’s Way of the Cross, as well as being a wonderful Christian witness to the Longmont community.

We will once again be walking across town in Longmont, CO, but this year in a new direction **!

This year, we will switch the direction of the Good Friday Walk and we will go from West to East.  We will walk from St. Francis of Assisi Church to St. John the Baptist Church (~5 miles). We stop at certain points along the way to pray the Stations of the Cross and the Rosary. We end with the Chaplet of Divine Mercy inside St. John the Baptist Parish right after the walk. We hope to arrive about 11:45am. Confessions will be available after the walk.

** One reason to switch the direction this year is the special Shroud of Turin Exhibit at St. John the Baptist Church, 11:30-2:30pm. Presentation at 12:30pm.**
       We’ve had upwards to 300 Christian witnesses on the walk and it’s powerful to
commemorate Good Friday as a faith community. Please join us, and please spread the word to family and friends!
BRING: Wagons, strollers, rosaries, water, snacks for little ones, sunscreen. Additionally, pack snacks for adults and kids to eat at the end of walk. Please, NO bikes, scooters, skateboards, iPods, or music. This is a solemn walk.
          In the past, small crosses have been made and carried by children; the large cross is reserved for adults.
Dress for the weather! We go rain or shine.
We will be praying the Sorrowful mysteries, the Litany of Humility, and the Stations of the Cross as we walk.

DATE: Good Friday, April 7th, 2023


START TIME:  8 AM – Sharp!

START PLACE(s):  Meet in the parking lot of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic, 3791 Pike Rd. Longmont, 80503 (Airport + Pike)

Again we urge everyone on this solemn, prayerful walk to treat this day like no other day of the year, because it is not.  Our Lord sacrificed ALL for you and me on this day.  It is not the day of business, school, or shopping that the world would have us see.

God bless your Lenten journey!
