Six Charles County churches held their first “Cross Walk” on Good Fri­day, an event sym­bol­iz­ing Je­sus Christ’s jour­ney to the Cru­ci­fix­ion in Chris­tian tra­di­tion.

First United Bap­tist Church of St. Charles, Peace Lutheran Church, Good Shep­herd United Methodist Church, Cal­vary United Methodist Church, Cal­vary Korean Pres­by­te­rian Church and Zion Wes­ley United Methodist Church took part in the event.

At­ten­dees walked from First United Bap­tist Church down Smallwood Drive car­ry­ing a large wooden cross.

Pas­tor Lau­rie Gates-Wood of Good Shep­herd United Methodist said the event was in­tended to “be a vis­i­ble sign to this com­mu­nity to re­mind what this day means.”
