Heavy rain does not deter ‘Carrying the Cross’

Despite a downpour of rain, several faithful turned out for the ‘Carrying of the Cross’ on Good Friday in Port Elgin, the most sombre day on the Christian calendar.

The traditional walk that initiates ‘Easter’ weekend began at Port Elgin United Church and ended at Tolmie Presbyterian Church, where there was an Ecumenical service of five local churches that included a combined choir of singers from each.
