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
