GOOD FRIDAY OBSERVANCE Belfast Y.C.W. Get 2 Minutes' Stop in Factories

A vigorous campaign was again Initiated this year by Belfast Young Christian Workers for the observance of one minute's silent prayer on Good Friday at 3 p.m., and the full report which has just reached us shows that in the Belfast region there were distributed 9,000 handbills and 20,000 prayer cards containing special Passion prayer. Fifty large posters were placed conspicuously at church doors, at bus stops, in shop windows and street corners, while three leading cieemas showed a. slide made by the Jocists calling attention to the coming Good Friday silence.

Several factories in Belfast stopped work for two minutes, and one parish erected a mound with a large crucifix erected on it on waste ground to represent Calvary.

Many instances of public respect In keeping the silence are still coming to Y.C.W. regional headquarters in Belfast.
