Good Friday – Veneration of the Cross
On Friday, April 2 St. Anne’s Liturgy of Good Friday is a solemn time of remembering Christ’s Passion. The Altar is bare and we kneel in silence. The silence is broken by prayer, “Almighty God, we pray you graciously to behold this your family for which our Lord Jesus Christ was willing to be betrayed, given up into the hands of sinners and to suffer death upon the cross. A cross is brought into our midst, the symbol of God’s great outpouring of love for us, “By your Holy Cross, you have redeemed the world.” There is no Eucharist on this day. We leave in silence.
