Update: Police arrest robbery suspect

A heavy cross to carry

Ronald Dupuis of Hewitt carried a wooden cross on the sidewalks of Broadway in Alexandria Friday. He said he wanted to draw attention to the message of Easter - how Jesus died, was resurrected and will be coming back again. Photo by Al Edenloff.

The newspaper received several calls Friday about a man carrying a cross in downtown Alexandria. They wondered who he was and some guessed it was a promotion for the Passion Drama.

As it turned out, the man is Ronald Dupuis with The Cross Comeback Jesus Ministry in Hewitt. He said he's been carrying the cross - made of hollow wood by a pastor - in parades and towns throughout the region for the past four years.

"Jesus is coming back," Dupuis said. "I'm just telling Christians to keep their faith."
