Christians mark Jesus' crucifixion on Good Friday. In many churches, such as Charlotte's St. Gabriel Catholic Church, worshipers do so by praying at the stations of the cross. A somber procession led by a cross-bearer re-traces Jesus' path to Calvary. The stations include 14 plaques or pictures depicting Jesus' Passion, from his condemnation by Pilate to the burial in a tomb. St Gabriel also held The Veneration of the Cross service, where parishioners file up to the front to kiss the feet of Jesus on a large cross. On Sunday, despair will give way to joy, when Christians celebrate Jesus' rising from the dead on Easter.
