As the procession silently made its way along the sidewalks in Old Quebec, many passers-by stopped and bowed their heads respectfully. Others joined in and followed the group to the next church.

Faithful worshippers gathered in Old Quebec on Good Friday evening for solemn,  dramatic reads from the Passion according to Saint John. They walked silently through the streets from one church to another while taking turns carrying a large wooden cross.
