The group went on a 2-mile silent prayer walk stopping at ten stations along the route from downtown to the Missippippi River.
“It’s an excellent way to explore our values within what exists in our city tangibly and to do that with our children, Bennett is 8 and Eddy is 10, it’s a good day to walk in pilgrimage,” said Annie Berendes, a participator of Justice and Peace Stations of the Cross walk.
The walk lasted two hours; people of all ages and faith backgrounds received an invitation to participate.
