Great and Holy Friday

April 19

1:00 pm | Remembrance of the Crucifixion of Our Lord Jesus Christ
7:00 pm |Remembrance of the Burial of Our Lord Jesus Christ

Holy Friday is the most solemn and sad day of the Christian calendar. The “Crucifixion Service,” usually held at midday, recalls the suffering, execution and death of our Lord, memorialized amid readings from the psalms. In the evening, a white tomb is placed in the chancel of the church for the “Entombment or Burial Service.” The tomb is adorned with flowers and during the service is taken in procession around the church. As the faithful leave the church they approach the tomb, kiss the Gospel book, and take a flower in remembrance.
