Good Friday Evening Service

During the Good Friday service, one of the most visually compelling moments in the dimly lit Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Atlanta, is the veneration of the cross. As the congregation stands in place, the weight of the cross is passed around the church. During the veneration of the cross, Dónal Noonan, director of music, describes the moment “as being underscored by yearning or tolling African drum beats.” Photo By Michael Alexander
