Friday marked the most somber day in the Christian calendar.
Good Friday commemorates the day that Jesus died on the cross. Many churches have services between noon and 3pm which is the time that Christ is believed to have died.
In the service, Christians go through the stations of the Cross which mark his journey to the Crucifixion.
"For those who can't go to Jerusalem, the stations of the Cross are a way of uniting them spiritually to our Lord's journey to the Cross, not just on Good Friday but all throughout the year," explained Father Brian Mulcahy of St. Thomas Aquinas Church in Charlottesville.
The solemn Good Friday is followed by the holiest day of the Christian calendar, Easter Sunday, which celebrates the day Jesus rose from the dead.
