Good Friday Celebrations Listed by Parish

April 10, 2020

On Good Friday, we recall Christ’s passion and death. It is the only day of the Church calendar on which Mass is not celebrated. Instead, we gather quietly to pray, both for ourselves and those around us; to listen to Scripture; and to venerate the cross.   Good Friday is a time to reflect on our own sinfulness and need for repentance, and it is a day in which, amid the sorrow, we show our appreciation for Christ’s loving sacrifice.  Good Friday is a day of both fast and abstinence.
