Update: 6:45PM ABOUT 100 Catholic youths from the Western Division participated in an annual cross walk pilgrimage to commemorate Jesus' death.

Western region cross pilgrimage support group leader Tukini Cama said the journey was to depict the pain and torment that Jesus Christ suffered for mankind.

"This is where they follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ through meditation on the 14 stations of Christs passion and that is marked on Good Friday," he said.

"The vigil mass on Easter Saturday also culminates with Resurrection Sunday where we celebrate Jesus Christ having risen from the dead as noted in the Bible and passed down through Catholic tradition."

Mr Cama said this was the teaching passed down since the early church which was headed by the apostles.
