Good Friday Three Hours

Good Friday

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Friday of Holy Week has been traditionally been called ‘Good Friday’. On this day, the church commemorates Jesus’ crucifixion, death and burial. There is no service of Holy Communion on this day.

At St Mary’s we observe the ‘Three Hours’ between Jesus’ crucifixion and death. The first two hours are usually a mixture of prayers, readings, hymns and reflections (broken into four half hour slots so that people can come and go if they wish). The final hour is the Good Friday Liturgy when we listen to John’s account of Jesus’ suffering and death and the Choir lead us in the Reproaches.
