Good Friday observed in the Lehigh Valley

Choir boys walk into St Paul's Cathedral during the Choral Eucharist

The annual procession, organised by Melbourne City Churches in Action, was a solemn 2½-hour walk past nine CBD churches, attended by eight Christian denominations.

"Stations of the Cross" refers to a series of images depicting Jesus on the day of his crucifixion, with accompanying prayers at each stop.

The churches of Circular Head united on Good Friday for a service that retraced the story of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

"I don't think Christians show enough in their communities about who Jesus is to them", Carter said, noting that the procession was a step in the right direction.

United Kingdom lacks understanding of events in Syria: Russia
Russian Federation continues to back the Assad regime and denies the Syrian leader gassed his own people. Activist Alaa Al-Youssef said that the strike which killed a woman hit a residential neighbourhood.

Many Christian churches in the Portage area, including Bethlehem Lutheran, will mark the Easter Vigil tonight, to recall God's presence with humanity throughout history and Christ's passage from death back into life.

"Today is the expression of the greatest mystery of our salvation that Jesus dies for us", said Father Andrew Gehringer, pastor of the Holy Infancy Church. "That moves people to express and explore their faith in new and different ways", Reverend James Barr of the Melbourne Welsh Church said.

"This walk reminds us of the unbelievable love Jesus Christ has for us". It was through Jesus' death that "He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil" (Hebrews 2:14). "We are called to love others with a love that is self-giving, self-expending and sacrificial".
