Good Friday Stations of the Cross
Good Friday Stations of the Cross procession at the Coppice in Accrington.
This inter-denominational prayer event is organised by the Knights of St. Columba and students from the two faith High Schools in the town; Mount Carmel and St. Christopher’s read stations of the cross prayers along the path to the summit.
Around 70 people attended this event on an extremely wet April day. Mount Carmel Headteacher Mr Bowers commented “The weather was shocking but it did not dampen the spirits of good hearted Hyndburn Christians. Many thanks to the Knights of St. Columba for organising this long- standing tradition and to Fr. Howard from St. Anne’s Parish for his support.”
At the summit all the pupil readers gathered together around the cross for a final hymn.
Thank you to Mount Carmel Year 11 Senior Prefects for representing our school and to the many families who supported this event to mark this important time of the liturgical year.
