Friday, April 14th, 5:00 PM. Good Friday Way of the Cross: Walk for Justice and Mercy
This roughly 1-hour, 1-mile walk is a modern day Way-of-the-Cross. We will walk, pray, and sing at each of the ten stops which are the walk’s stations. Each station will explore issues and problems in today’s society that call for justice and mercy. The walk will begin and end in Cathedral Park. You are invited to bring a cross to carry.
Cathedral Park is located two blocks southwest of the Capitol Square at 222 West Main Street. It can be found on the corner of South Henry Street and West Washington Avenue. Public parking is available just across Main Street.

Peter Yoches, Mary Kay McDermott, Eric and Brenna Anglada are establishing a new Catholic Worker Farm and Agronomic University at 2752 Clay Hollow Rd., Cuba City, WI 53807. Named after St. Isidore, patron of farmers, their community will continue (having moved from another farm where they've lived the past 7 years) to "live out Peter Maurin and Dorothy Day's vision of a Christian community on the land, integrating sustainable agriculture, communal prayer, simple living, hospitality, educational workshops, and active nonviolence." They are throwing an opening celebration that will feature a potluck and perhaps some dancing. Send your address to catholicworkerschool [at] gmail.com if you would like to be on their mailing list.
