The Last Supper was the first Mass celebrated by    Jesus,   when he gathered with his friends and told them         “do this in memory of me”.                           After the Holy Thursday ceremony, you are welcome to pray at                       the Altar of Repose. Adoration will end at 10.00pm   Good Friday    Stations of the Cross                  3.00pm                     Some young people in the parish will lead the Way of the Cross through                      reflection, mime and music.         Celebration of the Lord’s Passion 8.00pm        This is the main celebration for Good Friday.                        We hear again the story of Christ’s suffering and death.                        We venerate the cross and at the conclusion of this solemn but                                simple service, we receive Holy Communion.                        A short reflective prayer service around the Cross will take                          place after the main ceremony at approximately 9.30pm.                                          during which there will be an opportunity for confessions.          Holy Saturday     Morning Prayer                  11.00am                Easter Vigil                                 9.00pm On this Holy night, we pass from darkness of death on Good Friday to the empty tomb and joy of Christ’s resurrection. The light of Christ and the       blessing of new water remind us of our hope in the Risen Jesus. “In the world in which we live, of inflated words, we must rediscover silence and meditation. This is how we must prepare ourselves for the Easter Vigil, when the veil or sorrow, is swept away by joy”                                                                                                Pope Benedict XV1, St Peter’s square, 2007.
