On Friday, April 30th, Rev Fr. Anslem Kamuyu  took the first station from General Kago Primary School The Way of The Cross on Good Friday. The Good Friday Procession passed through General Kago, School, Cardinal Njue Roads, Kenyatta Highway,Ofafa, Ziwani estates with 14 stations each marking an event that befell Jesus on his final journey.   

Good Friday is a solemn day commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. Christians around the world observe this day with great humility and reverence. The Way of the Cross, connects the sufferings of Christ during his passion with the suffering of our brothers and sisters at the hands of violence, greed, poverty, sickness and war.

Fr Kamuyu urged the congregation to be unafraid in showing the world their passion for their Faith.

 "Good Friday is the start of a new beginning. It’s about time the world knew that by looking at us, and being faithful to Jesus who shed blood for us,".
