Holy Friday

Jesus Christ died for us and our sins on Great and Holy Friday, also known as Good Friday. It is called "Good Friday" because of His saving act for our salvation.

Many of us plan to stay at church the whole day.  We start off with the Royal Hours.  This is two-hour service of Psalms and Scripture readings.

After this service we set up the Tomb of Christ in preparation for Holy Friday Vespers in the afternoon.  This is a very beautiful Vespers service in which we place the shroud on the Tomb. Then in the evening we have the Lamatation Service or the Matins of Holy Saturday. Iwas very fortunate to have heard Archbishop DMITRI read the Prophecy of Isaiah, also known as"The Dried Bones" prophecy.
