Good Friday: A Service of Prayer & Silence

Friday, April 19, 2019
7:00 PM in the Church

Good Friday is the second day of the Triduum ("three days"). It is the service at which Christians remember Christ's trial, crucifixion, and death. It is a somber, reflective service of singing and prayers.Everyone is invited and welcome to attend.


What is Good Friday (From The Episcopal Church website)The Friday before Easter Day, on which the church commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus. It is a day of fasting and special acts of discipline and self-denial. In the early church candidates for baptism, joined by others, fasted for a day or two before the Paschal feast. In the west the first of those days eventually acquired the character of historical reenactment of the passion and death of Christ. The liturgy of the day includes John's account of the Passion gospel, a solemn form of intercession known as the solemn collects (dating from ancient Rome), and optional devotions before the cross (commonly known as the veneration of the cross). The eucharist is not celebrated in the Episcopal Church on Good Friday, but Holy Communion may be administered from the reserved sacrament at the Good Friday service.
