Cardinal Justin Rigali, Archbishop of Philadelphia, will celebrate an outdoor candlelight Stations of the Cross on the grounds of Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary on Good Friday. The fourth annual Archdiocesan service commemorates the tradition of Pope John Paul II in praying the Way of the Cross at the Colosseum in Rome on Good Friday throughout his Pontificate. Pope Benedict XVI has continued the tradition as Holy Father. Cardinal Rigali initiated the Way of the Cross in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia in 2006.

The Archdiocesan Boy Choir will provide accompaniment along the procession route.

7:30 p.m.
Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary

Last year, approximately 1,000 priests, religious, seminarians and parish families participated in the solemn service marking the day of the Lord's Passion. Cardinal Rigali invites the faithful of the Archdiocese to join him and the Auxiliary Bishops in public witness to their faith.
