Veneration of the Cross

Free parking will be available in the St. Paul's Parking Lot

Join us for Good Friday to commemorate the Passion, Cross, and death of Jesus Christ. Our service will be held at 12:00 Noon. All are welcome!

This day commemorates the Passion, Cross, and death of Jesus Christ. The liturgy is profoundly austere, perhaps the most simple and stark liturgy of the entire year. Although Communion is given and received, this liturgy is not a Mass; this practice dates back to the earliest years of the Church and is meant to emphasize the somber, mournful character of the day. 

Good Friday Stations of the Cross will be held at 7:00pm.
