Ancient custom sheds light on Easter

Ancient custom sheds light on Easter

Lismore Anglicans will welcome Easter Day this Sunday, April 16, using a unique, ancient Christian custom.

A special service will be held at St Andrews Anglican Church in Lismore at 5.15am where the New Fire of Easter will be lit before daybreak. The fire, signifying Jesus resurrection, will then be passed from person to person through the darkened church.

The custom dates back to medieval times, and is a unique way of celebrating this special religious occasion.

We are hoping that people well beyond the Anglican Church may wish to attend and participate, said Reverend Vivian Hoskins from St Andrews Anglican Church. The service will be followed by a hearty breakfast at 6.15am.

Normal Anglican Easter services will be held in St Andrews Church at 7.30am, 9.30am and 6.30pm, and at Dunoon at 9.30 am, Nimbin at 10am and Wyrallah at 5pm.

Everyone is welcome.
