All Saints Church-Community Centre in downtown Toronto will be holding a walk on Good Friday, April 7, that memorializes those who have suffered and died in the opioid epidemic. Drawing on the Good Friday tradition of marking the 14 points or “stations” where Jesus stopped on his way to the cross, walkers will stop and pray at 14 places where members of the community have overdosed. The walk will begin and end at All Saints Church-Community Centre, located at the corner of Dundas and Sherbourne streets. The walk will begin at 9 a.m. and will take 90 to 120 minutes. This is an outdoor service, so participants are asked to dress appropriately. Afterwards, there will be a Good Friday worship service inside the church at noon. All are invited.
