Good Friday Parade at St. Jerome's Church

Fri, Apr 18, 2014 6 p.m.

Every year on Good Friday, St. Jerome Church puts on one of the most realistic reenactments of Jesus Christ carrying his cross before his crucifixion you'll ever find.

Yeah, right here in good ole' Rogers Park.

Every year on Good Friday, St. Jerome Church puts on one of the most realistic reenactments of Jesus Christ carrying his cross before his crucifixion you'll ever find.

Yeah, right here in good ole' Rogers Park.

Hundreds follow behind chanting and singing hymns as parishioners portray the violent scenes of human suffering Jesus took, being beaten in public - while orally being taunted.

See, back when, when Jesus was really around, they didn't carry around 9 mm pistols so they could randomly shoot at one another out the window of a moving vehicle in broad daylight.

Adding to the authenticity of past and modern day, all the police and religious leaders do is look on and watch the beating happen - without remorse.

Here's a photo essay of 2012's event that ran south on Paulina to the Church on Lunt.

Fair Warning: If you're not into bondage, pain, suffering and humiliation, click away now!

Oh, by the way, you need a permit from the city for this activity. This is what Jesus endured to save our souls.

If you get a chance this evening, this is a must-see parade. Event starts at 6 p.m.

  • Thank you Craig. That is so deeply touching. Apparently you have experienced being beaten in public while orally being taunted. That must have been horrible just the same as Jesus suffered on his last day. Hopefully we will learn compassion and not be predatory our own selves. Craig that was a beautiful posting. Have a happy Easter.

My church, Agape Chicago, is throwing an Easter party at Pratt Beach on Sunday beginning about 1:30. There will be lots of free food, and two local bands (the Country Doctors and Rory Tyer Band) will perform.

All are welcome; come as you are. If you're the sort of person who always feels like they need to bring something, bring a dessert and a game!

We don't really have a rain plan, so here's hoping it doesn't rain.

Also, if you're looking for a place to go to church Sunday morning, we meet at 11am every Sunday in the New 400 Theaters.

    No doubt that our community has its charm and vistas .I have always thought that Divvy should go all the way to Evanston along the lakefront .I also think once they see that CTA and pace do not plug gaps in transport and with the closing of major food stores some people will be able to shop for small items and get to and throw quicker.I also think that Divvy has a good market west of western near lincolnwood mall(that area is way underserved by transit ) .wouldn't it be cool to rent a divvy and to the sculpture trail on mccormick.

The 20-year-old victim was attacked about 11:40 p.m. near the corner of N. Kenmore and W. Hollywood avenues. He said a man in his middle or late 40s had confronted him and claimed he had never returned a cell-phone that belonged to him, the attacker.

A mother of one of the boys accompanied them about 7:20 p.m. to 20th District police headquarters, 5400 N. Lincoln, to make the report. 

The boys said they were shoved from behind while riding through an alley just south of 5600 N. Lincoln Ave. Each of their cell-phones fell out of their pockets when they hit the ground. 

A woman was robbed March 17 stepping off a CTA bus near 4800 N. Broadway, CPD reported. 

Michael Tingling of the 7100 block of N. Ridge Blvd. was pronounced dead of a heart attack March 19 at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston. 

Tingling, 59, passed away about 2:45 p.m., less than 45 minutes after he'd been in a fist fight with a stranger on the 7100 block of N. Clark St. 

The 19-year-old had been attacked on the 1200 block of W. Albion Ave. about 8:20 p.m., according to CPD. He told officers he had heard fast footsteps coming from behind just before a man grabbed hold of him and his backpack.

The victim had been on the 2700 block of W. Lunt Ave. when he was surrounded. The first man approached him from the front while the second and third came from behind, he said. 

The victim, 32, said she had returned about 9:30 p.m. to her apartment building on the 2400 block of W. Fitch Ave. She had seen two men standing near the back door. 

The boys were walking on the 2900 block of W. Cortland Ave. when they encountered a middle-aged black male. He had pointed to a white van parked on the street and asked if they wanted to get inside. 

A 10-year-old boy and 13-year-old girl were walking to school on the 1700 block of N. Larrabee St. when a gray sedan pulled alongside them. The driver had rolled down a window and said, "Come over here." 

A third home on the 2100 block of Sheffield was broken into the afternoon of March 17. 

Two other homes were damaged on the 2100 block of N. Fremont St. and the 800 block of W. Armitage Ave. between March 14-and-16.
