Today on Good riday, Christians are remembering the crucifixion of Jesus. The youth at First Congregational Church in Greenwich are reenacting that with a walk from the church to Greenwich Point. 

"It's a little over a mile walk," said Olivia Gurciullo, a youth member. 

"Before Jesus was crucified he was forced to walk is cross alone, so it represents that" said Gilian Woodman. 

"We do it as a reminder of what Good Friday and Easter are about. It's symbolic. It's for us to be reflective,"said Donald Haviald of First Congregational Church. 

The cross will be used at the sunrise mass here at Greenwich Point on Easter Sunday.
