                                 On Holy Thursday we recall the Last Supper the night before Jesus

                               gathered with his friends and told them “do this in memory of me”

                               We venerate the Cross and at the conclusion of this solemn but simple               service, we receive Holy Communion.
 
Holy Saturday    Easter Vigil                                          9.00pm
 
                              On this Holy Night, we pass from the darkness of death on Good                   
                             Friday to the empty tomb and joy of Christ’s resurrection.
                              The light of Christ and blessing of new water remind us of our hope in            
                             the Risen Christ.
                              He is risen, alleluia.
