Students from St. Augustine High School and the Academy of Our Lady of Peace, dressed as Jesus, women and soldiers, re-enact the 15 stations or episodes in Jesus’ journey to Calvary. During the three-hour procession through downtown San Diego, representatives from organizations that serve the needy will provide prayers and reflections at various sites on issues that cause suffering. Auxiliary Bishop Ramón Bejarano will share a reflection on mental health.

The purpose of the walk is to help us reflect and pray for those who suffer because of poverty, human trafficking, lack of access to health care, hunger, lack of affordable housing, and other issues, according to one of the orgnizers.

The public is invited to participate in the walk. Participants will sing hymns as they walk to nine sites downtown, beginning and ending at the San Diego Rescue Mission. The walk is sponsored by the Catholic Diocese of San Diego. Free parking will be available at the San Diego Rescue Mission parking structure on Second Avenue across from the SDRM facility, located at 120 Elm St.
