A Walk To Remember

Whilst Friday may mean just another ordinary day of the week, the 18th Friday of April every year will always be a day to remember. 

This was the case anywhere else in the world that upholds Christian beliefs.  


In the second largest city of Papua New Guinea, Holy Thursday’s overcast gave way to a perfect Good Friday.

More than a thousand men, women and children converged for the Stations of the Cross as early as five this morning to commemorate Good Friday.

The yearly Church ritual brought many catholic followers from the outer suburbs of Lae city to remember the death of Jesus Christ. Traffic had to be halted as the people ferried the cross around the city.   

Whilst Lae has been battling against a battered image of high crime rates, many people still hope for the better.


And it is through such church events as these that the negative concept that has tainted the image of the province may be changed.
