Good Friday in the parish of Saint Charbel

(Translation of this article appears in Arabic section)

Good Friday is a focal point in the life of the Church and the faithful; a time when Christians around the world attend liturgical prayers in memory of the pain, crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ for the salvation of mankind.

Every year the parish of Saint Charbel celebrates this anniversary.

This year's celebration was characterised by Way of the Cross prayers and prostration attended by more than 5000 believers in the courtyard of the church, gathered to participate in liturgical celebrations ledby Father Antoine Tarabay and assisted by monks from the church and monastery.

The streets were crowded with believers who walked in prayer as they meditated on the Way of the Cross.

The Way of the Cross march, which started from Roberts Park, Greenacres, towards the church of Saint Charbel involving thousands, was a clear expression of the spiritual day where worshippers stop at every stage of the way to Calvary and pain ‑ praying and bowing down before the greatness of the love of The Lord.

State and Federal politicians attended the occasion; among them was the Federal Leader of the  Opposition, Tony Abbott, and his wife.
