The Good Friday liturgy is the most solemn of the year. The church was in darkness during the afternoon, as we gathered around the cross to mourn the death of Christ and to thank Him for showing such great love for us.

Today is Palm Sunday, the day on which we celebrate Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, when He was acclaimed by the crowds with palms and shouts of 'Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!'

THE LORD IS RISEN

Easter Vigil

He is risen, indeed. Alleluia!

The great paschal vigil began with the blessing of the Easter Fire and preparation of the Easter Candle which was then carried into a darkened Church each person taking a light from it until the church was aglow with the light of the Risen Christ.

Passion Play
