Pilsen’s traditional “Living Way of the Cross” returns on Friday


CHICGAO (CBS)– Pilsen hosts its 45th annual Pilsen Via Crucis: Living Way of the Cross.

It is a Christian tradition, especially Catholic, on Good Friday. The organizers reconstruct the Stations of the Cross, the last days of Jesus Christ.

The annual event is back at Harrison Park at full capacity, for the first time in three years.

Participants dress up and there are even permits to bring a horse.

As the organizers point out, this is not just a religious practice. It’s a Pilsen tradition.

“I’ve been coming here for 35 years,” said Joseph Ramirez.

The procession started at Daley Plaza and ended at Holy Name Cathedral.

This year, special invitations were sent to the Ukrainian community.
