The 16th Annual Passion Walk

March 29 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Good Friday, March 29, Noon
Sponsored by the Louisville Area Ministerial Association

On Friday, March 29, beginning at 12 noon, the Louisville Ministerial Association is sponsoring “Passion Walk 2024” and Food Drive for the Louisville Community Cupboard.

Participants will experience seven biblical events as they walk a three-mile journey of the. They may take a turn at carrying the cross, give a witness of the cross in the community, and experience on a deeper level Jesus’ teaching in Luke 14:27, “anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.”

The stations along the journey will include devotional thoughts, music, drama, and ample opportunity for personal and group reflection on the meaning of the passion of Jesus Christ. It is an experience that demonstrates in deeply meaningful action the unifying power of the Passion of Christ to all believers.

Parking is available at St. Louis Catholic Church. We will begin at Umbrella Alley. As in the previous Passion Walks, a shuttle service will be available to those who need it. The Louisville Police Department will again be providing safety assistance as the walk crosses the main roads.

Food Drive Information: We are asking participants to bring can goods, dry goods, and/or money for the Louisville Community Cupboard. We will collect the food at the start of the walk (Umbrella Alley) and the money at the Christ United Methodist Church.
