Priests underscored the significance of Good Friday as a period for introspection, repentance, and the renewal of faith. They urged worshippers to embody Christ’s teachings, fostering compassion, forgiveness, and unity within their communities.

The Way of the Cross ceremonies culminated with prayers for peace, healing, and redemption, echoing the enduring message of hope and salvation celebrated on Easter Sunday.

Main services on Good Friday typically commence after 4 pm in churches. These services entail the reading of the Passion of Christ, recitation of prayers, unveiling and veneration of the Cross, and communion.
