Good Friday Service

The Women's Christian Association of the Kosrae Congregational Church in Kolonia, Pohnpei, held their traditional Good Friday "black-out" service.

Opening with a prayer, the lights are then turned out.


In the darkness passages are read from the final moments of Jesus on the cross. With each passage a candle is lit and placed under the cross.


I know enough not to shoot with a flash during a black-out service, but others did not. On one of my long time exposures a flash went off. The FujiFilm XP30 handled the sudden illumination with aplomb. Shrue returns from placing her candle in the above image.

The service concluded with a prayer and a chance to greet each other at the start of the Easter weekend.
