The Christian Defense Coalition Will Hold Their Good Friday Service on the Eastern Lawn of the US Capitol Across From the House of Representatives

Christian Defense Coalition
March 28, 2024

WASHINGTON, March 28, 2024 /Christian Newswire/ -- The service will be on Friday, March 29 at 12:00 PM
As part of the Good Friday Service, the group will be displaying a 15ft cross as they celebrate the Stations of Cross and pray for the healing of our nation.
For 18 months after January 6th, Rev. Patrick Mahoney and the Christian Defense Coalition were denied permits to hold Good Friday Services, prayer vigils, worship gatherings and other peaceful First Amendment activities on the grounds of the US Capitol.
After the Christian Defense Coalition filed several federal lawsuits, the Capitol grounds are now once again opened to permitted free speech activities which include prayer gatherings and worship services.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Washington, D.C. based Christian Defense Coalition, states;

    "The Christian Defense Coalition is thankful religious freedom and the First Amendment are once again being celebrated and honored on the grounds of the United States Capitol this Good Friday.  Our efforts to open the Capitol back up to 'the people,' is a powerful reminder that all Americans must continually be vigilant in ensuring our rights are protected.
    "While our nation shudders under the weight of the many challenges we are facing, the power and message of the cross provides inspiration and strength to face the difficult road ahead.
    "Dietrich Bonhoeffer so beautifully stated from a prison cell as he faced execution, 'Good Friday and Easter free us to think about other things far beyond our own personal fate, about the ultimate meaning of all life, suffering, and events; and we lay hold of a great hope.'
    "Good Friday reminds us of God's extraordinary love and mercy for all of humanity as Christ experienced untold suffering to bring us into a personal relationship with God.  In a highly partisan and divided city and nation, the cross of Christ towers over America as a bright beacon of  hope and healing."
