Good Friday is the day in which Catholics believe Jesus Christ suffered and was Crucified for the sins of Humanity. The Good Friday Procession, which has its roots in the small towns of Italy, recalls the passion of Jesus Christ by way of Symbolic statuary representing Jesus and Mary, traditional Italian hymns, a traditional Italian funeral band, and processing men, women and children who re-enact the last steps of Christ to his tomb.
