Masses celebrated around the country on Good Friday

Masses are being celebrated around the Czech Republic on Good Friday which is once again observed as a public holiday. The holiday was observed in the years of the First Republic but was scrapped by the communist regime in 1951. It was reintroduced as a public holiday late last year by the country’s Parliament. The Archbishop of Prague, Cardinal Dominik Duka will serve a mass at St. Vitus Cathedral at 6pm on Friday.
