Good Friday

Why do they call it “Good” Friday? The short answer: because on this day our salvation was won by Jesus on the cross.
There’s much more to it, of course, because the mystery of the cross engages us on many levels and plumbs the depths of our being.
Today we will observe Good Friday with two services. At noon, the hour when Jesus was crucified, we will walk the Stations of the Cross, and at 7 pm we will observe the Good Friday Liturgy.
When we walk with Jesus in his last hours and gaze on the cross, we participate in the mystery and meaning of his death. I hope you’ll join us as we remember our Savior and Lord this day.
