In a marriage of Christian tradition and digital technology, Wall Street's Trinity Church is using the micro-blogging service Twitter to perform the story of Jesus Christ.

Followers of twspassionplay will receive tweets from the main characters of the play for three hours beginning at noon on Good Friday. The feed also can be delivered to mobile devices or e-mail addresses.

In addition, the Episcopal parish in lower Manhattan is offering a web version of the Stations of the Cross.

The church was founded by a small group of Anglicans in 1697.
