Tomorrow no Good Friday procession in College, the disappointed community wonders why

TORONTO – The reactions were not long in coming. The news published by the Corriere Canadese that also this year in College there will be no Good Friday procession, was not welcomed with pleasure by the Italian community and even, for example, by the Portuguese one.

College: Good Friday, no procession again

TORONTO – On Friday in College there will be no statues or banners or even prayers and songs. There will be no representation of the passion of Jesus Christ for the third year in a row. The last procession – the 57th – organized by the Church of St. Francis of Assisi dates back to 2019. Then the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic swept away with a sponge this tradition that precedes Easter Sunday. And also this year, now that despite everything the Via Crucis could have winded through the streets of College, the decision of the church was to postpone to next year this representation so dear to the Italian Canadian community and beyond.

For twenty years, until he retired in 2008, he also served as my self-described “older brother”. We were not related. Luckily, I did not protest too vigorously.

It serves as “a call to affirm the importance of cherishing information as a public good, and exploring what can be done in the production, distribution and reception of content to strengthen journalism, and to advance transparency and empowerment while leaving no one behind”. The Washington Post marked the day with Austin Tice in its full-page ad. (more…)
