Archfather Don Rutherford Recites Vespers for Good Friday

SANS-SOUCI OUEST 10 April 2020 (ORCNS) - HHE Don Rutherford I, Florentine Archfather shared a private recitation of Vespers for Good Friday. As is customary during Lent, Vespers is said traditionally during the morning during Lent rather than the evening, as it is during the rest of the liturgical year. The Archfather wears the version of the choral habit for Good Friday, on which day the prelates of the Imperial Patriarchate lay aside the lace rochet as a sign of mourning. Following its long-standing practices and experience, the Anglo-Italian Imperial Patriarchate, Anglican Rite Roman Catholic Church continues to lead the way during in reaching diverse global audiences through media and mission work during the global pandemic.
