Celebrating the Triduum at the Cathedral


Details of all services, music, orders of services and livestream links for the Triduum.

The Easter Triddum is the summit of the Liturgical Year and it runs from the evening of Maundy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday. The days and events of the Sacred Triduum are central to our faith: it is good to celebrate this holy time together. We are encouraged to journey with Jesus in this unbroken act of worship over these three days. Let us come to church and be with Him in this journey and let us prepare ourselves to celebrate this Easter with joy in our hearts.
