The Fraternity wishes a happy and blessed Easter to all, may the peace and joy of the risen Christ be with you and remain with you always.
We were fortunate and humbled to be able to gather as a Fraternity to celebrate the Sacred Triduum together and we thank Fr Joachim FSDM for his kind hospitality.
Over the course of the weekend, we celebrated the Mass of the Lord’s Supper, during which we renewed the promises we each made to God at the time of our ordination, the Mass being celebrated by our Ordinary, Mgr Alban. On Good Friday, Fr Charles presided at the Solemn Liturgy of the Passion of Our Lord and the Mass of the Presanctified.
The highlight of the weekend was the Easter Vigil, where Mgr Alban presided as Principal Celebrant, with the First Mass of Easter being concelebrated by all the Priestly Members of the Fraternity together. Following the Vigil, the Fraternity’s Statue of Our Lady of Walsingham was blessed and the light from the Paschal Candle was passed to the Candles to be taken away by the Priests of the Fraternity so that their own Parishes would have a Paschal Candle to burn during the Easter Season – representing the light of Christ going out into the world.
On the morning of Easter Sunday, Fr Joachim celebrated Holy Mass for the Fraternity.
Copies of the booklets of each Celebration and of the homilies preached will be uploaded in the next few days.
SURREXIT CHRISTUS VERE, ALLELUIA, ALLELUIA!
