St. Paul Catholic Church parishioners, including Jesus Alvarez portraying Jesus, held a Passion re-enactment that included three large wooden crosses. Portraying the evildoers who accompanied Jesus were Jose Carrillo and Cruz Cuevas.
Many in the procession dressed as people would have at the crucifixion of Jesus, wearing long, draping clothing and head coverings. Several men and boys dressed as Roman soldiers, even carrying whips.
The Good Friday processional is a tradition in Spain and many Latin American countries.
