Good Friday

12:10 p.m., Stations of the Cross (Cathedral)

Gather by candlelight in the cathedral at noon on Good Friday as a solemn procession recalls Jesus’ journey to Calvary. Each stop along the Way of the Cross—a “station”—is marked with a scripture reading, a prayer, and a meditative sung response. The liturgy mystically transports us to the ancient city of Jerusalem, preparing our hearts and minds for Easter. The cathedral will be open for silent prayer for a period of time following the Stations of the Cross liturgy.


5:30 p.m. Children's Good Friday Service

7:00 p.m., Good Friday Liturgy with Cathedral Choir

The Friday before Easter Day, on which the church commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus. It is a day of fasting and special acts of discipline and self-denial. The liturgy of the day includes John's account of the Passion gospel, a solemn form of intercession known as the solemn collects (dating from ancient Rome), and devotions before the cross (commonly known as the veneration of the cross).
