41st Annual Inner City Walk Will Be Presented in Video Format
“From Fear and Fatigue to Hope and Action: Take Up the Cross and Follow Me” is the theme of the 2021 Outdoor Way of the Cross in Edmonton. The event usually takes place in the Inner City at various locations in McCauley and Boyle Street.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s walk will be presented virtually, in video format. The video will be available to the public at 10:00 a.m. on Good Friday (April 2) through YouTube.
“The video invites us to think about the relevance and importance of the Gospel message in our world today in relation to the theme,” says Bob McKeon, a member of the event’s organizing committee.
2021 is the 41st anniversary of the Outdoor Way of the Cross event in Edmonton. This year’s theme explores issues in the context of Luke 9:23, which speaks of journeying through pain and death to new life. In the video, local leaders contribute reflections on environmental justice, homelessness, immigration and systemic racism, Indigenous issues and more.
All people concerned about social justice are invited to view the video, no matter their faith.
