Dozens of people braved wind and rain on Good Friday to attend the 25th annual “Way of the Cross” drama in downtown Greensburg.
For the 17th time, Rick Zabrosky reprised his role as Jesus in the hours before his crucifixion — driven relentlessly through the streets of Greensburg by eight Roman soldiers.
“It truly brings the Scriptures to life,” Zabrosky, of Greensburg, said. “I have been stopped after the event by several people who joined the procession and told how moving it was and how it brought tears to their eyes.”
The re-enactment started on the steps of the Westmoreland County Courthouse with Jesus’ trial before Pontius Pilate. Following his sentencing, he was led by the guards down a route comprising South Main Street, West Otterman Street, South Pennsylvania Avenue and West Third Street.
