Procession of Christ the Nazarene and Our Lady of Sorrows after evening Mass on Palm Sunday.

Other Holy Week traditions that are particular to St Joseph’s are the washing of the body of Christ on Good Friday, the ceremonial un-nailing and the procession of the dead Christ on Good Friday evening, following which the dead Christ and Our Lady of Sorrows are venerated till midnight and the next dawn till noon.
