Walking the way of the cross

Staff writer

Members of Holy Family parish celebrated Easter with four days of observances.

Good Friday’s observation began with a march from Marion City Library to Central Park, then along Main and Cedar Sts. to the church. Parishioners were led by Father Isaac Coulter and observed Stations of the Cross along the way.

After celebrants reached the church, a Celebration of the Passion of the Lord was held. Divine mercy novenas were prayed Thursday through Saturday evenings.

On Thursday, parishioners had an evening Mass. An Easter vigil was Saturday and before Easter services Sunday. The parish also had an Easter egg hunt at Marion.

Parishioners were encouraged to fast on Good Friday and Saturday with one full meal and no meat both days.
