On Good Friday, we recall Christ's passion and death. We gather in silence. There are no greetings, genuflections, or processions. The Passion of John is proclaimed.
The second part of the liturgy is the Veneration of the Cross. We are invited to come forward and reverence the cross with a touch or a kiss.
There is a simple Communion service with the Eucharist from Holy Thursday's liturgy. With no formal dismissal, we depart in silence to continue our quiet waiting and fasting for the Easter Vigil.
