Celebrating Good Friday

Good Friday, also known as "Holy Friday," is the Friday immediately preceding Easter Sunday. It is celebrated traditionally as the day on which Jesus was crucified. Many Christian churches celebrate Good Friday with a subdued service, usually in the evening, in which the betrayal and crucifixion of Jesus is remembered with solemn hymns, prayers of thanksgiving, an invitation to reflect on suffering of many kinds, and observance of the Lord's Supper (communion).
