About 5,000 people from nine Brooklyn parishes participated in the 35th annual Good Friday procession through the streets of Bensonhurst.

Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio led the closing prayer service at St. Frances Cabrini Church. Participating parishes included: St. Athanasius, St. Bernadette, St. Dominic, St. Finbar, St. Frances Cabrini, St. Mary Mother of Jesus, Our Lady of Guadalupe, St. Rosalia-Regina Pacis and SS.
