The Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls invite you to participate in a Good Friday Silent Walk for Peace on Friday, April 7, 9:30 a.m. After gathering outside the west entrance at St. Francis Convent, participants will walk together in a silent procession, stopping to pray at various designated places throughout Little Falls, including St. Gabriel’s Hospital, Morrison County Jail and Government Center, Veteran’s Memorial, Maple Island Park and a few other locations.
The procession will be led by a person carrying a cross. Bringing the cross and our prayers to various places in our community reminds us to walk in the way of Jesus, a way of compassion, inclusion and self-giving. Participants can take turns carrying the cross and leading the procession. The walk concludes back at the convent at about 11 a.m. If the event cannot take place outdoors due to inclement weather, a prayer service will be offered in Sacred Heart Chapel.
