Walking the Cross

The wooden cross was carried from Easter Lutheran Church to St. John Neumann Catholic Church to Eagan City Hall to Dakota County Library to Glacier Hills School to a park to All Saints Lutheran Church to Advent United Methodist Church and finally ended at Crossroads Church.  A huge crowd participated in this annual Good Friday tradition.
