Good Friday

Good Friday, Easter celebrate Jesus’ sacrifice

A cross is displayed Wednesday at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Morgan City draped with purple cloth representing the season of Lent. The palm branches surrounding the cross are from the Palm Sunday service when the church celebrated Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem. The cloth on the cross was changed to red for Good Friday and will be changed to white for Easter Sunday, the Rev. Danny Poche of Holy Cross Catholic Church said.

As Easter approaches, area clergy say the holiday is a reminder of Jesus’ death and resurrection to pay for everyone’s sins regardless of their beliefs.
