The procession will stop for worship and prayer at each of the 14 stations, offering an opportunity to reflect on the different moments of Christ's passion journey. All participating pilgrims will receive a service booklet that shares the acts of worship for each station.

To participate, park at Church of the Redeemer, 222 S. Palm Ave., between 6 and 7 a.m., and take a free trolley to Regal Hollywood Theatre, 301 Main, which is the starting location.
