Church acts out Viacrucis

Viacrucis – or Way of the Cross – is acted out on Good Friday at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church by the congregation’s youth as they go to each of the Stations of the Cross, re-enacting the path of Jesus on his way to the crucifixion. Above, Mario Alvarado Morales, playing the role of Jesus, stands at the cross before church members playing the roles of his mother Mary, Mary Magdalene and the Disciple John. RIGHT: Here, Roman soldiers march the bound Jesus, around the sanctuary.
