Good Friday

The Friday of Holy Week is the anniversary of the crucifixion of Jesus. It is probably the most solemn and sombre day of the Christian year. Often marked by services of reflection and penitence. In that Jesus, although innocent of all crime himself died for all mankind's crimes.

Some churches will mark it by a procession behind a cross, and traditionally the passion gospel (that dealing with the Crucifixion is read.

Traditionally the churches are stripped of ornamentation and decoration, and the priest would simply wear a black cassock.
