He is not here; He has risen!

By your gracious gift each year, your faithful await the sacred paschal feasts, with joy of minds made pure, so that, more eagerly intent on prayer, and on the works of charity, and participating in the mysteries, by which they have been reborn, that may be led to the fullness of grace that you bestow on your sons and daughters.

Holy Week and Easter leaflet

The parishioners of Ss Alban & Stephen Catholic Church invite you to commemorate with us the last hours of the life of Jesus Christ.

On Holy Thursday, we celebrate his Last Supper.

We follow Jesus on Good Friday as His broken body carries the cross to Calvary. We believe that Jesus Christ, Son of God, became human, died for our sins and then conquered death.

On Easter Sunday, we rejoice in His rising from the dead. Please come and join us this Easter and celebrate God’s unconditional love for each of us.
