Easter Vigil

 The High Altar before the Vigil Ceremonies began on Papa Stronsay

Preparations in the Sacristy

The Easter Fire prepared by Br Valentine seen on left

Br Yousef Marie sings the Exsultet for the first time as a Deacon

Br Jean-Marie, our sub-deacon chanting the first lesson 

Father Anthony Mary for the first time as a priest blesses the Pascal Water

Holy Mass begins with the images still covered in purple

Chanting of the Easter Vigil Gospel, with images now unveiled

 Br Yousef as deacon assists Fr Anthony as he celebrates Holy Mass

The Regina Caeli rings out as our hearts are filled with joy
 as the Lenten Fast is now at an end!

Easter Sunday morning is calm, bright and sunny

The Holy Island of Papa Stronsay as see from our boat.

Beautiful photos Brothers!

Thank you for sharing them with us.

You all look to be doing very well.

Keep us in your prayers.
Blessed Easter!

I couldn't help but think of St Brendan and the whale when I saw the photo of the Vigil fire. :)

I hope you all had a Holy Easter Week.

The carpet going up to the steps to the altar is a concern; rods to anchor it would make it safer.

Is Brother Valentine a new man? I have not heard of him before. Did a postulant sneak into the habit when we were asleep? Well, anyhow, CONGRATULATIONS Brother!
