Holy Saturday

Traditionally on the morning of Holy Saturday (and Easter Saturday, by the way, is in a week’s time) the Church waits at the tomb of the Lord Jesus following the death and destruction of Good Friday – there is no Mass until the Easter Vigil this evening. The ancient tradition of Jesus ‘harrowing hell’, portrayed here depicts him retrieving Adam, the first human, from the underworld.

Morning Prayer (live-streamed only) at 10am. The church will be open for Confessions from 1030 until 1230.

Many thanks to those who have enriched our worship on Good Friday – the Sisters who led rosary and Morning Prayer, those who organised the very moving Children’s Stations, the readers, servers, stewards, singers from the 930 Mass choir, together with Ann and Rob Higgs in the hall – while strange in many ways it was so good for many from our community to gather; thank you also to those of you who joined us through live-stream for these and other acts of worship yesterday.

 God bless and take care
