Every Good Friday, the Shrine organises a re-enactment of the Passion and Death of Jesus Christ. It is very well done with countless actors. It is a major event in the life of the Shrine, drawing about 7000 people each year. The Liturgy of Good Friday is celebrated at the Shrine after the play in the Church of the Shrine. The Play offers a great way to spend the Good Friday Public Holiday, with confessions in the morning, the Passion Play, the Liturgy and a wonderful site for a meat-less BBQ with the family. (Good Friday is a day of fasting and abstinence from meat, there's a challenge for you)
