Sounds fantastic - Easter vigil is my favorite service of the year. Thanks for sharing.


Sounds very similar to the one I attended at the monestary. Absolutely beautiful. My first time too!

We have a 4AM start though :(


Some really atmospheric photos and video. It's probably one of the most memorable acts of worship acts of the year for us at St Joseph's - and one of the Christian Church's most ancient, too. The neighbours think we are loopy as we gather around the bonfire at 5am. Our deacon sings the 'Exsultet' and we let rip with the party poppers, whistles, bells etc as we proclaim 'Alleluia. Christ is Risen!' The cooked breakfast afterwards is fantastic as well!
