Bearing the cross in New London
New London — The Rev. Ranjit K. Mathews of St. James Episcopal Church led worshippers in a Stations of the Cross procession on Good Friday in downtown.
The procession stopped at nine downtown locations — rather than the traditional 14 — where either violence or injustice was inflicted or where violence and injustice are addressed. Members of the group took turns carrying the cross and reading prayers at each station. They sang "Where Were You When They Crucified My Lord" between stops.
