People gathered in downtown Rockford Friday morning to take part in the 28th annual Good Friday Walk for Justice.
The walk was an opportunity for people to gather and pray for Rockford while honoring the Good Friday celebration. The walk stopped at 14 different stations throughout downtown Rockford that represent the community's attempt to help those who are less fortunate.
"The stops have also included places that need improvement in the city's compassion-such as the jail and a bank," Rockford Urban Ministries Director Stanley Campbell said. "We also pray for our leaders at the State and Federal buildings, for better communication through the newspaper, and a special prayer at the bridge for east-west side relations."
During the walk, a ten-foot, 75-pound cross was carried and prayers were said at each station. The following stations were visited:
The walk took about an hour.
