As they make their way around Rarotonga, more people usually join them, and they walk in silence and contemplation, remembering the sacrifice and suffering of Jesus to make lives better.
They think about Jesus’s final journey from Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem to Mt Calvary.
This year, because of the Covid-19 precautions, a few changes needed to be made to ensure the annual walk went ahead.
A maximum of three cross bearers headed west and walked one kilometre before handing the cross over to the next carriers.
While a small group trailed behind, they kept a distance of two metres.
The group are expected to arrive back at St Joseph’s Cathedral at 3pm – according to the New Testament, the approximate time of Jesus’s death.
