The Lancaster Downtown Ministerium is commemorating Good Friday today with an online ecumenical service centered on the seven last words of Jesus Christ.
The service is available on the Moravian Center's YouTube channel and through other participating churches and organizations.
It consists of seven pre-recorded video chapters, each focusing on one of the words. The chapters are available separately, or as a single 80-minute video.
They feature 29 participants from 24 organizations, including churches, faith-based organizations, city government, the School District of Lancaster and local nonprofits.
"This is probably the most diverse group of participants we have had for this service," said the Rev. Mandy Mastros, pastor of the Moravian Center of Lancaster and one of the events organizers.
Today's service follows an online Thanksgiving Eve interfaith service that was well received. The online format was adopted in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Mastros said.
