5.30 am – Easter Vigil
9.30 am – Solemn Mass
The day begins before sunrise with the Easter Vigil. We gather outside for the lighting of the new fire and the blessing of the Easter (Paschal) candle. Moving into the hall, the Easter Proclamation is sung and we hear readings from scripture. Then we move into the church building to renew our baptismal vows and to celebrate the first Eucharist of Easter.
A free, celebratory breakfast follows.
At 9.30am our Easter celebrations continue with a Solemn Mass.
