Description: Join the Franciscan Community at the Friary for one of the most atmospheric celebrations of the year, celebrating the discovery of the empty tomb on the first Easter 2000 years ago. It begins with a great bonfire, from which a flame is taken to light the Easter Paschal candle. A candlelit procession carries it into the Chapel, where there is a service of readings and hymns recalling the story of human frailty and God’s longing for the human race to discover the power of love.
