The Community at Buckfast Abbey are, once again, welcoming us for the services of Good Friday and Easter. Last year these services were well attended, and were a real strengthening of our Parish. 

As last year, we will follow the Easter Night service with a Bring-and-Share feast.  Please bring foods that do not need to be heated up, as we do not know at the moment exactly what facilities we shall have. 

At Totnes, we shall celebrate in the evening of Wednesday of Holy Week a shortened form of the Anointing Service.  Some of the other services of Holy Week will also have to be shortened, particularly the Saturday morning Liturgy.  I am getting old and can no longer manage what I used to do. I do ask everyone’s forgiveness.

There will be an Easter Liturgy on Friday 13th at the Priory in Totnes, and this will be followed by our usual Easter breakfast.  The Friday of Bright Week is also the Feast of the Lifegiving Spring of the Mother of God, the dedication of the little chapel at the Priory. 

Please support as many of these services as you can.  They are profoundly important. 

May I wish you all a very joyous Easter.

Father Benedict
