On Good Friday, the faithful of Saint Mary Star of the Sea Church joined clergy in recreating the final steps of Jesus Christ as he was about to be crucified in the annual Stations of the Cross procession. Along the way, the life and death of Christ is remembered through prayer and hymns as participants stop at 14 "stations" to reflect upon the passion and death of Christ.
