. THE 2018 EASTER SERVICES AT ST FAITH'S .
The final act in the build-up to the principal feast in the Church's calendar begins traditionally with the Easter Vigil service
on the evening of Holy Saturday. The new fire is kindled and the Paschal Candle lit and carried into church.
After a sequence of readings and chanting in the still darkened church, the resurrection is proclaimed.
The candles are lit on te high altar, revealed again in all its splendour, and the first eucharist of Easter is celebrated.
Rejoicing and ritual then mark the Easter Sunday service next morning,
with the blessing of the Easter garden in the midst of a church bedecked and reborn.
He is risen indeed. Alleluia!
