Good Friday Vespers and Procession with Holy Shroud in Perth Amboy, NJ.

On Good Friday morning, April 25, 2016 ACS students along with the parishioners of Ukrainian Assumption Catholic Church have gathered to commemorate the crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ. In Ukrainian this day is called Veleka Pyatnysia. Divine Liturgy for the feast on Annunciation with Burial Vespers and Procession with the Most Holy Shroud (Plaschanitsia) took place on this special day. The service was a most beautiful mix of pastor, parish choir, and ACS school students praying together remembering what it must have been like to lay Jesus in the tomb. After the service, parishioners approached the Plaschanitsia on their knees to kiss the five wounds of Jesus.
