Easter Church Services in English

This year the usual Easter programme at Caravita and the Pontifical Irish College is different from previous years. The changes follow a decree from the Roman Vicariate whose stated aim is "rediscover the centrality of the parish as a family home and a community of faith", putting the focus on parish churches and preventing the "Easter Vigil from being reserved for particular groups."
