Holy Week Services in Greater Sudbury

1.  Outdoor Way of The Cross  |March 30  |Sudbury – South End


This year the Parish and the Development and Peace Group are putting on the Way of the Cross. We will be walking the Fourteen Stations praying for those who are facing great suffering around the world.


We will start at the University of Sudbury entrance foyer at 10:00 am on Good Friday and will be proceeding to various locations on campus.  If you would like to participate by way of reading, carrying The Cross, making a banner and carrying it, please contact Sean Patterson (


This is our first outdoor Way of the Cross, so please dress accordingly as the event will be held outdoors regardless of the weather.


We hope this experience will draw us more deeply into the great sacrifice Jesus made for us and to be in solidarity with the many who suffer around the world in our times.


Please note our Good Friday service will take place in the St. Ignatius of Loyola Chapel at 3:00 pm. This year The Passion of Christ will be dramatically performed.
