Good Friday Veneration of the Cross
April 19 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Continuing the Easter Triduum that began on Holy Thursday, on Good Friday we commemorate the death of Jesus on the cross. According to Scripture, Jesus died at the third hour, which is why this service begins at 3:00 pm, the hour of his death.
The service begins with reading from Scripture, and then there is opportunity for each individual to show veneration of the cross, whether bowing, genuflecting, touching or kissing the wood of the cross.
After all have proceeded to show veneration, the cross is placed on the altar and we remain to pray in silence.
