And any such custom would be local. My nephew was baptized some years ago on Palm Sunday afternoon at his RC parish, along with other infants. The first and third Sundays of the month were when the parish typically did infant baptisms, and so that's when it took place. My great nephew was baptized Sunday before last, on Laetare Sunday.

The emphasis on baptisms at the Easter Vigil is usually that of adults, typically RCIA catechumens.

Generally speaking,in the Roman rite the sacraments are not celebrated on Good Friday and Holy Saturday - so no weddings above all.

There can be,of course,exceptions. A few years ago Pope Francis allowed a Requiem Mass for the victims of a tragic earthquake in Italy to be celebrated on Good Friday.

I remember also reports of a wedding on Good Friday (according to Catholic rites) for a high profile prisoner and his bride. This took place in prison,but I don't know what the reason for granting permission was.

Strictly speaking there should be no Communion given ,apart from at the liturgical ceremonies,but exceptions are made for the sick at home,particularly if it is a case of Viaticum for the dying.

I'm so glad we (my branch of Lutheranism) don't have that "no communion on Good Friday" rule. It would feel very odd to me to be cut off on that day of all days from the gift that links us to Christ's death most strongly. Of course most Shipmates are going to disagree, I know.

This is also the Catholic tradition of course -- with the difference that communion is received from the hosts consecrated at the Mass of the Lord's Supper the previous evening.

"For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes."

Yes, we have the Eucharist of the pre-sanctified, which is where we'll be heading very shortly.

Wait - does this mean that your branch of Lutheranism celebrates the Divine Service/Holy Communion on Good Friday or at least allows one to or are you referring to receiving sanctified elements of Holy Communion that have been reserved? Does your branch of Lutheranism allow reservation of the sanctified elements of Holy Communion (to take to the sick or for any other purpose)?

We don't do the pre-sanctified thing. That is not to say that we don't take communion to the sick, but rather that those who do will again say at least the words of institution in the hearing of the person. We usually don't have elements remaining because if we did, someone would have consumed them.

Moving on from Palm Sunday, we held our Maundy Thursday Mass 'in the round', gathered about the free-standing altar in our wide chancel. It worked well, and we could have comfortably accommodated a few more than the 10 actually present (15+ would have been a bit awkward).

I wish we'd done the same for today's Liturgy, which had an embarrassingly-small attendance - just 13, instead of the usual 20-25. Ah well, there's always next year. One member of the Faithful Few, however, remarked that 'quality was more important than quantity', and said how moving and well done the service was. Which told me off good and proper!

we do both Maundy Thurs. and Good Friday in the round - about 50 yesterday, 22 today (another 21 went to a non liturgical service).

A goodly number for Maundy Thursday, leo!

Perhaps next year we should explore the possibility of joining with other churches for a Good Friday liturgy...

If you can find one - sadly it isn't very popular

Perhaps not - though at least one neighbouring parish does a fairly liturgical service at 2pm on Good Friday, in addition to their 'Family Workshop' in the morning (which is quite popular - 40 kidz + 40 adults last year).

My suggestion to them would be to come to us for the afternoon liturgy, which (though I say it as shouldn't) we do rather well...

I don't expect HUGE numbers on GF, but we usually run to 25 or so, so this year was rather disappointing. Holidays/illness/small children/work etc. etc., I expect.

Be comforted: there were three of us for our 2pm service on Good Friday, though we did "meditations on the 7 last words of Christ" rather than the full liturgy (which would likely not only scare the horses but cause them to bolt for the tree line).
