Cross carriers

MARYVILLE, Mo. — The Rev. Craig Kirby-Grove, front left, and Fr. Albert Bruecken, carrying cross, lead a group of ecumenical worshippers through the streets of central Maryville on Good Friday during a symbolic recreation of the Stations of the Cross — biblical episodes that describe the experience of Christ in the hours prior to, during and after his crucifixion. The ritual, which included scripture readings and hymns, was hosted by the local Ministerial Fellowship.
