Members and friends of All Saints Church-Community Centre take part in a walk in downtown Toronto on Good Friday, April 7, to memorialize 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, the walkers stopped and prayed at 14 places where members of the community have overdosed.
