Walk to Follow New Route This Year

On Good Friday, April 18, the Jesuit community is invited to join the Nine Churches Walk and reflect on the Stations of the Cross. The Nine Churches Walk begins at 8:45 a.m. at St. Mary’s Assumption on Josephine Street and will conclude at Immaculate Conception Church at approximately 1:30 p.m. The event is a solemn walking pilgrimage of nine historic churches in the Archdiocese of New Orleans while reflecting on Our Lord’s passion and death.

Although Good Friday is a fasting day, participants may choose to bring a light snack and water for the walk. Dress for the weather and bring sunscreen or a hat. Be prepared to walk approximately four miles. Participants should arrange their own ride back to their vehicles after the walk.
