Wellsville Area Ministerial Association Carries On Good Friday Traditions
It was a busy day yesterday for members of the Wellsville Area Ministerial Association and other faithful as they commemorated Good Friday, the day Christ died on the cross. The day started with the annual Wellsville Good Friday Prayer Breakfast. The breakfast was held at the Covenant Presbyterian Church.
Later participants gathered at the closed Immaculate Conception Church for the traditional Good Friday Cross Walk. Prior to the walk getting started WAMA President Aaron Smith offered prayers that the church will soon be reopened for the Wellsville Catholics.
Lead with Wellsville Church of the Nazarene Pastor Dirk Hall & retired Rev. Jay Nightengale (in the red ball cap) carrying the cross those gathered proceeded down Main Street to Mt. Zion FBH for a noon Good Friday service. The service was conducted by Mt. Zion Pastor Darlene Zanders. Several Wellsville area congregations were represented in the Cross Walk.
