Carrying the cross of Christ

Published 4:37 am Wednesday, April 24, 2019

Members of several local churches, including Memorial Baptist Church, Lee’s Creek Baptist Church, Monroe Street Baptist Church, Main Street Baptist Church and Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church, participated in an outdoor carrying of the cross through Bogalusa on the afternoon of Good Friday, April 19.

Although there was occasional rain, the church members did not let the weather spoil their visible symbol of the meaning behind Easter.

The members walked the crosses from Memorial, Lee’s Creek and Monroe Street churches to Cassidy Park, where they came together for a worship service.
