Good Friday

Good Friday, also known as “Holy Friday,” is the Friday immediately preceding Easter Sunday. It is celebrated traditionally as the day on which Jesus was crucified.

This solemn and reflective service, which Rejoice observes in the evening, is a continuation of the Maundy Thursday liturgy and hence begins in silence as the night before ended in silence.  The day is observed with readings from the Scriptures relating to the Passion of Christ, subdued music and a bare altar which symbolizes the bareness of the cross and helps us reflect on the emptiness of the world without Christ.
