LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A crowd of people celebrated a Christian tradition in Louisville Friday morning, even as they brought attention to those suffering in the world today.

They gathered for the 22nd annual "Way of the Cross: A Walk For Justice." The event is held on Good Friday every year.

While honoring Jesus' passion and death, they pray for those caught in oppression. The one-and-a-half mile walk started at the corner of South 7th Street and West Chestnut Street this morning and ended at Founders Square.
