Parishioners from both St. Thomas the Apostle, Woodhaven, and Holy Child Jesus, Richmond Hill, participated in their joint parish tradition – sharing the Way of the Cross events together.

For decades, parishioners from both Holy Child and Woodhaven’s St. Thomas the Apostle processed along Jamaica Ave., towards the soils of Forest Park for veneration of the cross, past the white picket fenced houses until they reached the church steps on 86th Ave. for the noon Stations of the Cross.
