JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - A special Stations of the Cross procession in New Jersey’s second-largest city will remember victims of violence.

More than 100 people from 15 churches will walk the streets of Jersey City on Friday and stop at 14 sites where people were killed or injured by gun violence. They plan to pray and sing in order to replace hate with hope and love.

Christians observe the stations, which commemorate Jesus’ walk to his crucifixion.

The procession starts where three teenagers were stopped and one was killed and will end where a father of eight was slain.
