Christians Celebrate Good Friday Throughout U.S.
Pilgrim Charles A. Chavez pauses below a roadside cross to pray on his way to the Santuário de Chimayó church, Friday, April 18, 2003. An estimated 10,000 pilgrims walked to the 190-year-old church at Chimayó in honor of Good Friday, a Christian holiday to remember the crucifixion of Jesus. Locals say the earth found in a small room in the back of the church holds miraculous healing powers. Pilgrims have come to the church at Easter for more than 100 years, often traveling the nearly 30 miles from Santa Fe on foot.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
