In this post I will show some of the photos taken during the Good Friday Service at Assumption Grotto in Detroit, which began with Sext.
All bow during the "Gloria Patri" at the end of one of the Psalms
Altar boys split - one to the right and one to the left as they process into the Sanctuary
In sorrow and humility, priests lay prostrate at the beginning of the service. This sign of humility is one where the priest considers himself unworthy to lift his face on account of how Jesus died on the cross for our sins.
During the singing of the Passion, Fr. Perrone (center) takes the part of the Narrator. The man dressed in white to the right sings the part of Pontius Pilate.
The choir, in the loft, sings the parts of the crowd, among other appropriate verses.
Altar boys line up to venerate the Cross - first genuflecting, then kissing the figure of Our Lord crucified.
Fr. Perrone and Deacon Jim prepare to take the Blessed Sacrament back to the Sacristy, where Our Lord is reposed during this time.
The Crucifix at the steps of the Sanctuary following the praying of the Divine Mercy Chaplet - around 3:15pm.
