Annunciation B.V.M. Parish in South Philadelphia commemorated the passion and death of Jesus Christ on Good Friday, April 18, with a procession and reenactment through the streets of the neighborhood. The reenactment was spoken entirely in Spanish and volunteers from the community acted out the roles. The procession began in front of the church then processed a dozen blocks while stopping at each station for prayer, then ended with the final station on the steps of the church at 10th and Dickinson Streets.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
