Marion Henry and Molly Dick lead a procession through North Albury yesterday. Picture: JOHN RUSSELLEASTER is a time for sharing.
And yesterday that was shown when seven different churches came together for the Stations of the Cross.
Hundreds of people followed church leaders in a procession from St Mark’s Church in North Albury to the Salvation Army on Corella Road before heading to Trinity Uniting Church and finishing at Sacred Heart Church.
Father Peter MacLeod-Miller, of St Matthew’s Church, was part of the group and said Easter was a time to put differences aside.
“It’s time to bury the hatchet that divides people and work out what’s good for our community,” he said.
He said after world tragedies like the Germanwings air disaster, there was shared injustice and fear.
But he wanted to use Easter as an opportunity to encourage people to share hope.
“Easter is a time where people get together around the themes of suffering but also reconciliation,” he said.
“When we hit a dead end in life and things look totally finished, that is when we can be surprised.
“People who have written themselves or other people off should wake up and give it another go.
“We can do amazing stuff if we are open to it.”
People of all ages turned out to join the Easter procession.
