Good Friday Liturgy (7:30 pm)

We enter a very stark church on Good Friday as we prepare to commemorate Jesus' crucifixion. The Good Friday liturgy helps us to reenter that moment in history and reflect on the brokenness of the world. The procession is silent. The Passion Gospel will be sung in parts by three cantors, taking the parts of Jesus, Pilate and others. Special prayers are offered that are specific to Good Friday. Confessing our sins takes on a particular poignancy on this darkest of days in the church year. There is no celebration of the Eucharist on Good Friday, but we receive the Sacrament of Christ's Body and Blood that was consecrated on Maundy Thursday. Receiving the bread and wine reminds us that even on Good Friday, Christ is still present to us. Jesus died once and his Resurrected Presence is with us now and forever more.
