As we prepare to mark the day that Christ was put to death, we wanted to take a look at the various Good Friday traditions around the world. While many Catholics honor Jesus by performing the Passion or participating in processions, each country has its own unique way of commemorating Good Friday.

While most of these traditions require a crowd, there is a beautiful tradition in  Bermuda that would be perfect for any family to partake in, and may even help a child to understand Christ’s Ascension. To discover the wonderfully moving ways Catholics all over the world pay homage to our Lord on Good Friday, click on the slideshow below.
