Good Friday

Good Friday is a solemn remembrance of the Crucifixion of Jesus, and to that end our liturgies on that day encourage us to follow in Jesus' final journey to Golgotha. Good Friday is the result of our human desire to 'do it our own way.' The day ends with palpable grief, the outcome of the machinations that send Jesus to the cross. And yet, the day can never be divorced from God's greater action, hidden at first, but then brought to full light in the Resurrection. Our hateful 'no' becomes God's loving 'yes'.

We observe Good Friday with two services that trace the Way of the Cross; with a liturgy that includes veneration of the Cross and Communion from the reserve sacrament; and finally with a vigil of prayer.
