Good Friday, The crucifixion and burial of the Lord The Church commemorates the passions and crucifixion of Jesus Christ (Matthew 27:32-44, Mark. 15:21-32, Luke 23:26-43, John 18:17-27).
After the Passover the Roman soldiers led by Judah arrested Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane. The passions of Christ begin from that moment. The Armenian Church has sanctified the commemoration of these events through appropriate services. Jesus Christ was delivered by the hands of the guilty and was sentenced to death. The meaning of Holy Friday is concentrated on the story of crucifixion. On Good Friday a symbolic tomb of the crucified Jesus Christ is adorned with flowers with the participation of the faithful The tomb is considered to be the symbol of death of the human life. The flowers symbolize the feelings of joy, happiness, as well as respect, devotion, faith, hope and love which describe any true Christian.
On Good Friday, April 14, 2017 the parishioners gathered at Holy Trinity Armenian Church to attend the Burial Service of our Lord Jesus Christ. The symbolic tomb was decorated as the faithful laid flowers on it.
