The Good Friday Procession of Witness took place in Preston, followed by an Ecumenical Service on the Flag Market.Advertisement
Hundred’s of Christian worshippers from city centre churches joined the traditional annual procession which began at St George’s Church led by the Vicar of Preston, the Venerable Michael Everitt. The cross was carried up Lune Street and along the main shopping street, where pedestrians and motorists came to a halt as they passed through Fishergate before arriving at the Flag Market for an Ecumenical Service.
