The Paschal Candle will remain on this front page until Ascensiontide, in the same way that it would be lit at all services in church during this period. One of the many symbolisms of the candle is that of the presence of the Risen Christ on earth among His disciples, and before His ascension into heaven. Some churches keep it lit until Pentecost.
Christ is Risen – Alleluia, Alleuia!
He is risen indeed – Alleluia, Alleluia!
An Easter Week reflection from the Revd Ron Corne.
One of the All Saints’ traditions we’ve missed this year was the Parish Lunch and Easter Bonnet Parade, which would have taken place after Easter Day’s Sung Eucharist. Here is the creation which one of our parishioners was planning to wear. Would it have won first place? Sadly we will never know . . . . although perhaps we should plan to hold the parade and competition when the current isolation period is over!
