Good Friday Drive Thru Prayer and Cross Giveaway
SOUTHFIELD – Good Friday is a day of great gratitude, and St. David’s Episcopal Church is giving away crosses and offering prayer to all who come. It is the day Christians mark Jesus’ crucifixion so from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm, robed ministers will pray and distribute crosses to all who drive up to the south entrance of the church located on Twelve Mile Road.
The Olive wood crosses that will be distributed are from Jerusalem.
The driveway is parallel to Twelve Mile Road. Motorists may easily enter the driveway from the side closest to the sign for St. Anne’s Mead Assisted Living and Nursing Care. Then they can travel westbound a short distance down the driveway until the reach the station for ashes by the front doors of the church. Motorists may stay in their cars while they receive their blessing. Afterward, they may quickly exit the driveway and continue their journey down Twelve Mile Road.
“Last year, hundreds of people received prayer and ashes through this ministry,” said the Very Rev. Chris Yaw, rector of St. David’s Parish. “What’ more, many of us, who served on that day, were blessed by the opportunity we had to meet and pray with others.”
St. David’s also is holding two indoor services on Good Friday, one at noon and another at 7 p.m. Those services will include Holy Eucharist.
St. David’s Episcopal Church has been serving the people of Metro Detroit since March 2, 1952. Parishioners first met in a Berkley school gymnasium, then moved to the current location in Southfield in 1956. Sunday services are held at 8 and 10 a.m. both in person and via zoom. St. David’s has a food pantry, a tutoring program, serves meals at Crossroads Soup Kitchen in Detroit, annually sends medical personnel/assistance to Haiti, visits residents of St. Anne’s Mead Senior Community, hosts homeless guests through the South Oakland Shelter, visits guests at Detroit Rescue Mission, among other ministries. St. David’s is located at 16200 W. Twelve Mile Road. Our Web address is www.stdavidssf.org
