The Good Friday Service was divided into three main segments-First, reading of passages from Holy Scriptures including the Passion of Christ from the Gospel of  St. John the Evangelist and paruers for the various intentions of the church; second, Veneration of the Cross and third, Holy Communion. 


he Passion of Christ was narrated by Ashish Alva along with Fr. Clement Mascarenhas, Joy Fernandes and choir.

In his homily, Fr. Lawrence Cutinha stressed on the significance of the Cross in the lives of people. He said that Jesus accepted the Cross and made it the symbol of triumph and salvation.
