Good Friday - 18 April 2014

Friday 18 April 2014 - Good Friday Services

9 am – The Liturgy of the Day 
3 pm – The Solemn Liturgy

On this day the Church commemorates Jesus’ crucifixion with some of the most dramatic and moving liturgies of the year.

The liturgies of Good Friday include the reading of the St John Passion in dramatic form, Solemn Prayers for the world and the Church, the Unveiling and Veneration of the Cross, and the reception of Holy Communion.

The 9.30 am liturgy makes particular provision for children and families, while the 3 pm Solemn Liturgy is fully sung. 

There will be an opportunity to make your confession to a priest after both services.



 'Behold the Man'

“Pilate took Jesus and scourged Him. And the soldiers twisted a crown of thorns and put it on His head, and they put on Him a purple robe. Then they said, “Hail, King of the Jews!” And they struck Him with their hands.

Pilate then went out again, and said to the crowd, “Behold, I am bringing Him out to you, that you may know that I find no fault in Him.” Then Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. And Pilate said to them, “Behold the Man!”

When the chief priests and officers saw Him, they cried out, saying, “Crucify Him, crucify Him!” Pilate said to them, “Shall I crucify your King?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar!” Then he delivered Him to them to be crucified.

So they took Jesus and led Him away. And He, bearing His cross, went out to a place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha, where they crucified Him, and two others with Him, one on either side, and Jesus in the centre."
