Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- It is Good Friday, and a local youth group hopes to remind people exactly what that means to the Christian religion.

Youth from St. Andrew Lutheran church walked down 13th avenue south this morning, bearing a wooden cross on their shoulders.

The walk signified Jesus walk to his crucifixion 2-thousand years ago.

They were hoping to bring attention to the true meaning of the holiday.

Erika Borslien, a Youth Group Member says, "I don't think that everyone really thinks about it and they don't realize what actually happened. We just hope that this reminds them of what actually happened and how severe it was."

They made the two-mile walk back to the church in silence.
