Christians mark Good Friday

Christians in Ghana would join their counterparts all over the world on Friday to commemorate Good Friday that marks the suffering, crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ some 2000 years ago.

Most Christians are likely to wear black or mourning clothing to attend special church services to commemorate the day, which is one of the pillars of Christianity.                                                                                                            

Good Friday comes barely a week after Palm Sunday, which marked the triumphant entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem.

Many Christians have over the Lent period been fasting, praying and asking for repentance and meditation on the agony and suffering of Jesus Christ on the cross and to understand what this means for their faith.

Many Pentecostal churches are also holding conventions that would end on Easter Monday.
