GARY | The Interfaith Clergy Council of Gary and Vicinity will gather to observe Good Friday.

The community is invited to share in the Good Friday Service at noon Friday at Israel C.M.E. Church, 2301 Washington St. This year’s speaker will be Bishop Dale Cudjoe, pastor of Christ Temple Church of Christ (Holiness) USA in Gary.

Community grants will be distributed during the service for projects in the community to help men, women, and children who are at risk.

Bishop Designate Norman J. Hairston II is president of the Interfaith Clergy Council of Gary and Vicinity.

Good Friday, also called Holy Friday, is observed primarily by Christians commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. It is observed during Holy Week on the Friday proceeding Easter Sunday, and often coincides with the Jewish observance of Passover.
