Seven Last Words of Christ

Good Friday, 12:00 Noon – 3:00 pm

On Good Friday, we relive Christ’s last words with this powerful tradition. Seven different parishioners and clergy will give a reflection on each of the “words” or phrases. Together with scripture readings, music, and personal prayer time, these three hours will transform your Lenten experience. Some people will feel called to enter into this for the full three hours. Others may come and go as needed.
