The 40th annual Ecumenical Good Friday Pilgrimage (Urban Way of the Cross) sponsored by the Archdiocese of Atlanta’s Justice and Peace Ministries returns for the first time since 2019 on Friday, April 15, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. This walking prayer is a moving experience that includes scripture readings, reflections, prayer and music as we remember the passion of Christ and the social injustices in our world today.

The pilgrimage will begin at the Catholic Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, located at 48 Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive, SW, Atlanta, Georgia 30303. We will gather at 8:45 a.m. and begin our journey with an opening prayer and reflection at 9:00 a.m. by Bishop Ned Shlesinger. We will conclude at approximately 12:00 p.m. with a reflection and closing prayer. Buses will be available to return participants to our start point. Participants are encouraged to carpool or use public transportation as parking is limited. The 2-mile route is considered wheel chair accessible, but please keep in mind that not all of the sidewalks along the route are smooth or wide.

Please contact Kat Doyle, Director of Justice and Peace Ministries, at for more information. All are welcome!
