Good Friday Vespers and Procession with Holy Shroud in Perth Amboy, NJ.

This year, the parishioners of the Assumption Catholic Church in Perth Amboy, NJ with many students of the Parish School, participated at the moving service called solemn Vespers with the burial procession bearing the Holy Shroud or Plashchanitsa. The “plashchanitsa” is a winding sheet with the picture of Christ’s body lying dead in the tomb. After the procession, the shroud was laid out for veneration on a replica of the sepulcher.
