Bayley Tonucci, 9, touches the statue of Christ as she walks the Stations of the Cross at St. Joseph Vietnamese Catholic Church on Friday March 3, 2015. On Good Friday, Catholics and Protestants marked Jesus' death on the cross. Many churches relive Jesus' suffering, or Passion, via a step-by-step ritual with art and statues called Stations of the Cross. Charlotte's St. Joseph Vietnamese Catholic Church has life-size Stations of Jesus, the Roman soldiers and others outdoors. On Good Friday, the church's priests and members performed the Stations outside, just to the side of the church, with these life-size representations.
