Tonight, with the celebration of Mass on the evening of Holy Thursday, the Church begins the Easter Triduum, the holiest three days of the year. We do so remembering the grace with which Canon Isaac, may he rest in peace, celebrated the ceremonies last year in lockdown and in previous years with members of the parish present.
This evening’s Mass recalls the Last Supper at which the Lord Jesus, on the night He was betrayed, showing His love for those who were His own in the world, gave His Body and Blood under the species of bread and wine offering them to His Father. He gave them to the Apostles so that they might partake of them. He commanded them and their successors in the priesthood to perpetuate this offering.
Only those who have already had their booking confirmed are able to attend Mass this evening, but the Mass of the Lord’s Supper will be live streamed from St. Teilo’s at 7.00pm
Whether we are present in person or by virtual means we can take part in the offering of the Mass by joining our prayers with the prayer of Fr. Dwayne as he joins himself with Jesus’ offering of Himself for the whole world.
