The life and death of Jesus remembered on Good Friday

Hundreds of people marked this Good Friday with a re-enactment of Jesus' final hours.

The Hispanic community at All Saints Catholic Church hosted its third annual live Stations of the Cross event. It's based on an ancient prayer.

Parish members walked through 14 stations with someone who portrayed Jesus to reflect on the trials he faced before his death.

The church's pastor says it helps bring the story to life for the whole family.

"What is wonderful is that everyone can be engaged. The children can do as children do, they can go and they play. But the events are remembered by the adults. The children will remember. There's a seeing and a listening and a being with each other and a talking," said Father Michael Woods.

Pastors say it's great to see the whole congregation come together to remember Good Friday, regardless of race or ethnic background.
