Continuing a Good Friday devotion that is popular in their native countries, immigrants of Central and South American heritage dressed in costumes and presented the Way of the Cross April 18 in the streets surrounding St. Agnes Church in Greenport. Small altars decorated with flowers, votive candles and statues marked several stations along the route. Following the service, Vincentian Father Marvin Navas presided at a Spanish-language Liturgy of the Lord’s Passion inside the church. The annual event is coordinated by Dominican Sister Margaret Smyth, director of the North Fork Spanish Apostolate.
