  You may hear a recording of our Easter Day Mass here. Although done in a very simple way with a small digital recorder, we hope that this in some way helps us to maintain a strong spiritual bond with our congregation, guests and friends. We hope also that the photograph from our side chapel may give a sense of the solitude yet with the right light and liturgical expression for Easter.
