Michael Duca, the bishop of the Diocese of Baton Rouge, will be hosting a "Way of the Cross" devotion this Friday in reparation for sexual abuse within the church.

Since late January, the names of 41 clerics credibly accused of sexual abuse have been released by the diocese.

The "Way of the Cross" services are most notably held during Lent and on Good Friday to recall each step that Jesus took to his crucifixion. This Friday's event will be held at St. Joseph Cathedral beginning at 7 p.m.
