  • Today is an important day for Christians

    Good Friday immediately precedes Easter Sunday each year. It is celebrated traditionally as the day on which Jesus Christ was crucified.

    Many Christian churches celebrate Good Friday with a subdued service, usually in the evening, in which Christ’s death is remembered with solemn hymns, prayers of thanksgiving, a message centered on Christ suffering for mankind and observance of the Lord’s Supper.

    On this day, Christians commemorate the passion, or suffering and death on the cross of Jesus Christ.
