On Good Friday, the day of Christ’s death on the cross, we commemorate with the solemn Passion service, which includes our clergy presenting themselves prostrate at the Altar, a Liturgy of the Word, Veneration of the Cross, and Communion service. Today the whole Church mourns the death of our Savior. This is traditionally a day of sadness, spent in fasting and prayer.
This year, due to the quarantine restrictions, this Service will occur without the congregation. Parishioners are encouraged to venerate the Cross in their own homes at the time the clergy are venerating at the service. While this service would usually begin at 3:00, the time of Christ’s death on the cross, this year our recorded service will be available to view later in the day. However, Stations of the Cross from Saint Jude can be viewed at any time. We encourage you to participate in Stations at the 3:00 hour using Stations Booklet, The Way of the Cross
