When erected, Thursday evening, March 28 at 8 p.m., the huge cross will be draped in purple linens. On Easter Sunday, as the resurrection of Christ is celebrated, the drapery will be changed to the traditional white to symbolize new life. At the same time, "The Divine Mercy" image of Christ will also be revealed. "The Divine Mercy Project: Prayer in the Public Square" runs 24 hours a day, with an ongoing vigil through Sunday, April 7.
Participants in the Friday morning Easter Sunrise service include: Rev. Zaki L. Zaki, Chicago Northwestern District Superintendent of the United Methodist Church, Michael Keinapple of Courtside Ministries, the Greater Chicago Church worship team, Dr. Hiram and Dr. Joranda Crawford of Pro-Life Pro-Family Coalition, Michael Sullivan from Divine Mercy Project, and Thomas Brejcha, President and Chief Counsel of The Thomas More Society.
