Alex Bury carries a wooden cross from The Cathedral of the Madeleine during the annual interfaith Good Friday processional Friday April 18, 2014. Since 1983, the Salt Lake Council of Churches has sponsored this annual procession, which is similar to the tradition of the "Via Dolorosa" (Way of Suffering), where pilgrims to Jerusalem follow the path Jesus took to the cross. Rev. Michael J. Imperiale, Pastor of First Presbyterian Church, is at right and Patty Bury is at left.

Taking symbolic steps to retrace Jesus’ path to crucifixion, pastors, priests and parishioners marched through downtown Salt Lake City as part of an interfaith Good Friday Procession of the Cross.
The route began at the Cathedral of the Madeleine and then headed to First Presbyterian Church, Crossroads Urban Center, Central Christian and First United Methodist before concluding at St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral.
Holy Week concludes Sunday with Easter services at Christian churches throughout Utah.
