Mangaluru Catholics celebrate Good Friday
Good Friday is celebrated by the Christians on March 30. This day marks the crucification of Jesus Christ.
Thousands of devotees flocked to their respective churches early in the morning to participate in the Good Friday service which started with Way of the Cross.
The church ceremonies on this day include reading of the Passion of Christ, reciting a string of prayers, unveiling and veneration of the Cross and communion service.
During this day, Way of the Cross was held at Milagres Chruch here. Parishioners took out a procession carrying the statues of Jesus and Mother Mary with great devotion.
Some churches hold the Way of the Cross in the afternoon. Bishop Dr Aloysius Paul D’Souza conducts the Way of the Cross every year at Rosario Cathedral.
