Good Friday is the day on which Christians commemorate the death of Jesus Christ on the Cross, the act that brought salvation to all who believe in Him. Good Friday is the culmination of Holy Week, which begins on Palm Sunday and takes place two days before Easter.
There is no official proclamation made by the Liberian government. Celebrants gather in their places of worship with their families on Good Friday to remember Christ for paying the ultimate sacrifice to save believers. On that day some churches commemorate the Passion of Christ in lectures expounding on His last seven statements before His death on the Cross. The following Sunday is Easter, the day Christians believe Christ arose from the dead according to scripture.
