Holy days announced

The Greater Warrensburg Ministerial Association has announced the following services and events:

Starting Feb, 15, Stations of the Cross observances will be held at Church of the Holy Cross 3764 Main St. beginning at 7 p.m., preceded by a soup supper at 6 p.m. All are welcome. These Stations observances will be offered every Friday excluding March 29.

Beginning at noon on Good Friday, March 29, a public ceremonial procession with the cross will be held. The march begins in front of The Church of the Holy Cross, and all are welcome to join the walk up Main Street. Devotion, hymns, and carrying a cross will all serve to remind participants of the meaning and origins of holy days, according to local ministers.
