Mass of Easter Day

It was standing room only in the Cathedral on Sunday morning, for the Solemn Mass at 10.30

The choir was at its best; Holy Week is an intensely moving time, and the music deepens and expresses the religious mood.

At 3,500 in the congregation, we had to close the doors of the Cathedral, for reasons of health and safety. Numbers were significantly up on last year - despite the wintry weather!

Here, the Cardinal presides at the throne at the beginning of Mass.
