Last in The Series

John has sent the 'Last in The Series'

Here Canon Barton is outside St Michael's church blessing the new Paschal Candle. (Here he points to the Omega in saying "Christ the Alpha and Omega..")

The Revd. Richard Bittlestone is also here as the Trinity Church candle is also blessed and dedicated for the year ahead. The procession proceeds into the dark church lit only by candles and the Easter Vigil service was begun as Richard sang the ancient "Exultet" which rejoices in the resurrection.
