Annual Good Friday Walk

Annual Good Friday Walk 2021- NOT canceled!

Because of this pandemic past year, we are in need of this annual Good Friday Walk more than ever.  This event is not canceled by any means, but definitely looks different than years past.  Below are changes and suggestions.

Some of the GF Walk coordinators will walk beginning around 9:00am from St. John the Baptist Church to St. Francis of Assisi Church (~5 miles) starting in the morning, and arriving before noon for the Divine Mercy Chaplet, which starts at 12:00pm at SFA.

All are welcome to follow us, walk ahead, or decide your own walking route and start time. However, we are not organizing any police escorts, crossing streets together as a large group, or coordinating any transportation rides back. In addition, we will follow the Boulder County/CO covid requirements (gather in your own family or groups of 10 or less, stay distanced apart, and mask when necessary).  Please use your best judgment as we are publicly visible and want to be a positive sign to the community. Since we will not be praying together or stopping as one large group as in the past, we encourage you to print out the Stations, prayers, and map for your own family/small group. We have attached them in the links.

We encourage you to make your own smaller cross to carry and get out with your family, whether you “join us” or make up your own walking route.

While this event may not be organized like previous years, we wanted other families to know we are connected in faith in more ways than one.

DATE: Good Friday, April 2, 2021

START TIME:  No set time.  Start whenever you can, but start!
START PLACE(s):   Some will start in the morning at St John’s parking lot.
Others at Isaac Walton or At Home store parking lot.
Others may start after the Divine Mercy Chaplet at St Francis (12noon) and walk east in the afternoon, ending at St. John’s in time for the 3 PM Good Friday Liturgy.
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!
