Walking from Brooklyn to Manhattan is always an experience. On April 6, however, a procession over the bridge will be a religious one.

The Catholic lay group Communion and Liberation will, for the 12th year, bring the “Good Friday Way of the Cross Procession” from St. James Cathedral to St. Peter’s in Lower Manhattan.

The march is led by Brooklyn’s Bishop Ignatius Catanello and Bay Ridge resident Jonathan Fields, who will carry a four-foot, 10-pound wooden cross across the bridge. Along the way, it will include songs from the Communion and Liberation choir as well as readings from the Gospels.

Beyond the joggers and cars zooming by, the parade draws thousands of spectators and has even been recognized by the Pope himself — though he’ll be bearing his own cross on Good Friday and won’t be on hand.

“Good Friday Way of the Cross Procession” begins at 10 am on April 6. Meet at St. James Cathedral (248 Jay St. at Tillary Street in Downtown Brooklyn). For information, call (212) 337-3580.
