The Eucharist moves from darkness to light. We recall God’s saving actions through time, culminating in the Resurrection in the light of the first Easter Day.
The Easter Vigil marks the end of the emptiness of Holy Saturday, and leads into the celebration of Christ’s resurrection. During this service a number of candidates will affirm and reaffirm their faith through baptism and confirmation.
The sermon will be delivered by Rhidian Brook, the Holy Week Preacher, and the service will be sung by the St William’s Singers.
