Our arrival is marked by a short service where all the groups are welcomed to the island and their crosses are laid at rest in the chapel. This is closely followed by lunch and a well earned rest.
Good Friday - The Passion
On Good Friday evening we share together a service of reflection on the Passion of Our Lord. Although this service is new each year it has often taken the form of a quiet reflective time with a reading of the passion and usually ends with an open ended time of prayer where people may remain for as long as they need.
Easter Saturday - The Service of Light
Each year we collect driftwood and build a bonfire on the beach to be our Paschal Fire. The service is shared with the local Anglicans and others and takes place in the local Anglican church (St. Mary the Virgin Holy Island). The service is in four parts; "The vigil", which is a series of narrative readings with the church in darkness; "The service of light" a procession to the beach to light the paschal candle from the fire; "The liturgy of baptism" where we renew our baptismal vows and "The first Easter service" which is a celebration cooperatively organised by both the Anglican and Roman Catholics where all are welcome.
