Easter Day Services

16 April 2017
5.15am – Dawn Liturgy with Initiation and the First Communion of Easter 

At dawn, a bonfire is lit in the cloister garth, symbolising the creation of light in Genesis, and the triumph of light over dark, of life over death, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  The clergy and congregation go in procession into the Cathedral, and those seeking confirmation are confirmed and receive their first Eucharist, and others are baptized, symbolising the beginning of a new life in Christ on the memorial of his rising from the dead.
