BECKLEY – Holy week prayer services continue Friday in Raleigh County.

Good Friday marks the day of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Churches in Southern West Virginia honored today with programs and readings of the Stations of the Cross.

Good Friday falls before Easter in the Christian church, which is the culmination of the Lenten season.

Locals gathered to pray at St. Francis in Beckley as the Stations were read aloud, detailing the final moments of Jesus’ life.
