Good Friday tradition

Many Christian crosses are draped in purple during Lent, a color that represents the season and that is also known as the color of royalty. On Good Friday, many churches will change the color of the drapes to black, representing Christ’s death on the cross. Those drapes, in turn, will be changed to white on Easter Sunday, signifying purity and Christ’s resurrection. These crosses stand tall in front of the Wesley Chapel at Covington First United Methodist as many celebrate Good Friday. (Staff Photo: Julie Wells)
