Easter Vigil

Matthew 27:57-66 (King James Version)

57 When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple:
58 He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.
59 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,
60 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.
61 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre.
62 Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,
63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.
64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.
65 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can.
66 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.

Good Friday
John 19:25-30 (King James Version)

25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.
26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.
28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.
29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.
30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Anglican Communion Covenant

The Anglican Communion Covenant was developed in order to outline how the Communion's 38 provinces relate to each other. First proposed in 2004 as a way for the Anglican Communion to maintain unity amid differing viewpoints, the final text of the covenant was sent in December 2009 to the provinces for formal consideration. So far, Mexico, Myanmar, and the West Indies have approved it and no province has rejected it.

In the U.S., the covenant will be discussed at its General Convention in 2012 and in England, the covenant has to be referred to diocesan synods before it can return to the General Synod for final approval.

Holy Trinity Cathedral Grant

The Anglican diocese of Quebec's Cathedral of the Holy Trinity will receive $114,446 - 70 per cent of the amount needed ($163,494) to restore its doors, windows, entrance and masonry work.

The Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, built from 1799 to 1804, is the first Anglican Cathedral to have been built outside the British Isles, and is located near the Chateau Frontenac and the Place d'Armes. It was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1989.

Since 1995, the Quebec government, through its Ministry of Culture, Communications and the Status of Women, has invested $6 million in the diocese of Quebec, out of $240 million overall for religious heritage restoration.
