Good Friday at St. Joseph’s

Thousands flock to St. Joseph’s for the two hour open air Good Friday Service.

What do they do for two hours?

Very fascinating.

Well Jacob, since you ask here goes ……… There's the 14 stations of the cross, scripture reading, penitential rite with general absolution, prayer of the faithfully, unveiling of the cross, holy communion and finally veneration of the cross. And that’s not all… There are back-to-back English services on Good Friday so the clergy does a double shift. Plus there are other services non-stop throughout the day in Tamil, Urdu, French, Arabic, Malayalam and Konkani. And it all runs like clockwork!

That's amazing! It sure does give the clergy and their assistants something to do!
