Cross procession

St. Gregory in Upper St. Clair, PA.

As part of our Lenten journey, the Third Sunday of the Great Fast is dedicated to the Precious and Life-Giving Cross of our Lord. Following the Divine Liturgy on March 4, blessed with sunny weather, the Cross Procession took place in our Brookside Farms neighborhood.

This procession was led by our youngest parishioners who carried the Cross and prayed portions of the Akathist Hymn to the Passion of Christ. This was a prayerful event as we remembered our Lord’s suffering, while also praying for our neighbors surrounding St. Gregory.
