Christians gather for Living Stations of the Cross

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - Many local Christians took to the streets of Utica on Friday as part of the annual Living Stations of the Cross.

For the past 30 years, the group Mohawk Valley Pax Christi, which works on social and international issues and strives for a life of nonviolence, has organized the event.

It's a way to highlight many of the social problems that exist and urge people to come together to try and help fight them.

"Our purpose today is to walk -- there's 14 different events in the life of Jesus that span the time when he was walking to his Crucifixion -- and basically we try to relate those events to modern day social justice issues that are afflicting our community and our world in general," said Jane Domingue, event coordinator.

One of the locations the group walked to is the Hope House to stop and pause for those who are suffering from homelessness and hunger.
