THE Bishop of St Asaph is marking Easter with a series of online services.

The Rt Revd Gregory Cameron recorded services for Holy Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday from his chapel next door to the Cathedral in St Asaph.

All are available to watch at

Easter Sunday morning services are among the most popular in the church calendar.

In a series of pastoral letters, Bishop Gregory has encouraged people to continue with the Easter schedule of services.

Speaking earlier this week, the bishop said: “I am already feeling disappointed that the lockdown means that celebrations of Easter, the Queen of Feasts, will be muted. Just when I would be preparing for the moving ceremonies of the Chrism Eucharist and Easter Vigil, not to mention Good Friday, I am conscious of the need to minister to a scattered family, where the future is more unclear than ever before. At the same time, I am given a huge privilege and opportunity, with the help of colleagues, to speak to all of you through the recording of liturgies so that services will be available for the Triduum – the three great days of the liturgy of the Passion.”

In a pastoral letter from April 1, the bishop said: “I urge you all to renew your faith in the risen Lord. I urge you…to travel with Jesus through Jerusalem to Gethsemane and beyond. I urge you to hold out your hand that the Lord may take it, whatever paths we have to walk, that he may impart hope and love and grace.”

The Bishop of St Asaph has recorded a service from his chapel in St Asaph every week since public worship was suspended in churches on March 18. All services on are the diocese website.

The Easter Season begins on Easter Sunday and lasts seven weeks, ending with the coming of the 50th day, Pentecost Sunday.
