The catholic faithful worldwide collectively marked the Good Friday through rich visual imagery and symbolism, as is the norm in the Roman Catholic Church.
Good Friday is a Christian holiday commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus and His death at Calvary.
The Church throughout the past centuries, seeks to bring Christians to the foot of the cross of Christ, erected on Golgotha.
At St Joseph the Worker, Mumbi Catholic Church in Murang’a, the faithful in their hundreds revisited the events of the day that Jesus was crucified, by walking solemnly, the ‘Way of the Cross’ from Mukuyu town to the Church’s grounds, by publicly reading selected psalms and singing hymns about Christ’s death.
The Christians led by Fr. Stephen Kara, the Assistant Parish Priest, Mumbi Catholic Church, further participated in the liturgy that consisted of the reading of the Gospel Passion narrative, the adoration of the cross and communion, as Mass is not celebrated on this day.
