The Solemn Liturgy of Good Friday

Add to My Calendar

Friday, April 19, 2019
5:30 pm High Altar

The Solemn Liturgy of Good Friday is the second of three services of the triduum (the first was last night, the third is tomorrow night). Today, the altar remains bare, stripped last night at the end of the Solemn Liturgy of Maundy Thursday. Because there is no extra ornamentation in the church whatsoever—no flowers and no colorful falls hanging on the pulpit or lectern—the church is as unadorned as you will ever see it. Even the crosses used in procession are simple black and red. There are no torches flanking the crosses.

Sung by: The Saint Thomas Choir of Men and Boys
