For the sixth year in a row, the Jersey City congregations held a public Stations of the Cross at the sites of violent crimes in their neighborhood.
The Rev. Thomas Murphy of St. Paul's Church in Bergen and the Rev. Laurie Wurm of Grace Church Van Vorst worked with Jersey City police to identify 13 locations where people were attacked or killed in the past year. The 14th and final location was the Jersey City PD West District building, where participants prayed for the police.
More than 80 people participated in the procession.
