“Carry the Cross” is a 12 mile Stations of the Cross hike sponsored by Wilderness Outreach for the men, fathers, and sons, of the Columbus Diocese. A cross constructed of 3”X6” timber, approximately
Last year a total of 69 laymen, fathers, and sons participated. St Mary’s of the Assumption, Parish Lancaster, won the honor of the most men. In past years St Patrick, Columbus and St Matthew Gahanna have won. Each year the parish with the most men has an engraved brass plate placed on the replica cross.
This is a good way for fathers and sons and parish men’s groups to engage and bond with one another in a masculine, spiritual, and physical challenge.
The starting location will be in the parking lot and shelter house at the Barneby Hambleton area at the western end of the park.
