The Catholic and Church of Ireland Archbishops of Dublin will lead the traditional Good Friday silent walk through the streets of Dublin carrying a cross from Christchurch Cathedral to Saint Mary’s Pro-Cathedral on Friday 19 April 2019.
Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin and Archbishop Michael Jackson, the Church of Ireland Archbishop of Dublin and Glendalough, will begin the Walk of Witness event with a moment of prayer in Christchurch Cathedral at 7.15pm. The two archbishops will then quietly lead the crowds through Dublin city centre as they carry the cross of the ecumenical monastic community of Taizé across the Liffey to Saint Mary’s Pro-Cathedral for 8.00pm.
There will be an hour of meditative prayer around the cross with Taizé chants and music for about one hour until 9.00pm.
All are welcome to join the archbishops on the walk which is approximately 2.5km in length.
