Holy Saturday

Holy Saturday is a long empty day in the Christian calendar, when we wait outside the tomb, wondering what will happen.

 

On this Holy Saturday we stand, sit or kneel outside the Lord’s tomb, meditating on his passion and death, and on his descent into hell, and awaiting his resurrection with prayer and fasting. At a time when we are also morning the loss of our Parish Priest, Canon William Isaac, we can feel the longing for redemption, which characterised Jesus disciples as they waited on this day, for ourselves.

 

The Church remains solemn and silent until the celebration of the Easter Vigil in the evening of today.

 

The Easter Vigil will be celebrated at St. Teilo’s at 7.00pm tonight. Only those who have already had their booking confirmed are able to attend the Vigil, but the Vigil Mass will be live streamed on the Parish Website.

 

The newsletter for Easter Sunday and Easter Week is now available.
