.- Hundreds of Catholics and Evangelicals joined together in song and prayer in a first-time public display of faith and devotion during Holy Week this year.
The theme of the event was Catholics and Protestants Together for Christ.
The group met on the evening of Good Friday for a candlelight procession, which began at 9 p.m. at St. Patrick’s Cathedral and made its way through Soho, East Village and Greenwich Village. The procession stopped at seven churches. Outside each church, the group prayed two Stations of the Cross and sang hymns.
The group gathered again on Easter Sunday at Union Square to hand out Easter lilies to the public and to sing Easter songs proclaiming the Risen Lord.
