IT MAY BE SYMBOLIC and also has become a norm on the Good Friday calendar of events, but the re-enactment of the 14 stations of the cross has become a significant event.

Yesterday, on what is perhaps the most solemn day for Christians across Barbados, a number of churches undertook this special journey through villages and the heart of the City. One such event drew many onlookers early yesterday to Our Lady Queen of the Universe Roman Catholic Church in the environs of Black Rock.

In the afternoon members of the Sons of God Apostolic Baptist church held theirs starting at Richmond Gap, St Michael, and going through Bridgetown. In both instances the objective was the same: giving thanks for the sacrifice Jesus Christ made when he died on the cross at Calvary.
