Good Friday Walk April 6, 2012
Posted 6 April, 2012
The 2012 Good Friday walk took place on a sunny but cool April day. Folks from western Lachine gathered in Summerlea United Church at 9 AM. They walked along the lakeshore pedestrian path to the Italian church at the corner of 44th and Broadway, where a brief service was held. They then returned to the lakeshore to make their way to Resurrection church at 34th Avenue, where they met up with the walkers from eastern Lachine, for a total of some 125 attendees. Here another service was conducted by several Lachine ministers, with music by flautist John Osborne of Summerlea United.
Following the service the people moved to the church hall for hot cross buns and water.

As we approached Resurrection church, we saw the eastern Lachine group
already heading into the church, past the Dairy Queen sign.
