April 2, 2010: Good Friday Service

Posted on : Mar 13th, 2010 | By | Category: Special Events

Good Friday Service – April 2 at 7pm

WHPC & United University Church on the USC Campus

Again this year we will join our friends at United University Church on the USC Campus for our Good Friday service.  This service combines elements of a “crosswalk” through the Stations of the Cross with a Tenebrae service of darkness and shadows, in which worshippers meditate on the last days of Jesus’ life through scripture and poetry, prayer and silence, hymns and the extinguishing of candles.  We will move from location to location, singing; we will stop several times for readings and ritual.

Following worship, those who wish will join together to “break the fast” at El Cholo’s Mexican Restaurant on Western Ave.

If you would like to be one of the readers of scripture or poetry, see Dan Smith!

Maps are available!
