Hexham and Newcastle Diocese


The sacred Paschal Triduum started with the Mass of the Lord's Supper, during which we remembered in a special way the Last Supper of Christ, when he instituted the Eucharist and washed the feet of his disciples, followed by Good Friday, when we commemorate the suffering and death of Jesus. The Easter Vigil service celebrates the resurrection - the triumph of Jesus over death as he rises from the grave. Light has overcome darkness and new life bursts through.
