On Easter Day the Church proclaims the triumph of Jesus over the powers of evil and the gift of life for us all. It is the greatest feast day of the whole year!
Thank you to all who prepared our churches for the Easter Triduum ceremonies, there are too many to mention by name and so many jobs have been done, many behind the scenes. Thank you!
We do all because we love the Church and want to demonstrate our support and loyalty to the Body of Christ, proclaiming the truth of the Resurrection.

During Eastertide, we pray the Regina Coeli to ask Our Lady’s prayers for the whole Church as we celebrate the Resurrection. Using this ancient prayer, we ask Our Blessed Mother to pray for us as she celebrates her Son’s Resurrection.
Joy to thee, O Queen of Heaven. Alleluia!
He whom thou wast meet to bear. Alleluia!
As He promised hath arisen. Alleluia!
Pour for us to God thy prayer. Alleluia!
V. Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, Alleluia!
R. For the Lord is risen indeed, Alleluia!
Let us pray:
O God, who through the resurrection
of Your Son our Lord Jesus Christ
gave rejoicing to the world:
grant, we pray,
that through His Mother, the Virgin Mary,
we may obtain the joys of everlasting life.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
