A Catholic community in the United Kingdom is celebrating Easter with religious easter decoration and a special message from Pope Francis.
The Easter season officially ends on Wednesday, but Catholic groups are still celebrating by dressing up and doing their best to cheer up their neighbours.
The UK Easter celebrations have taken on a life of their own, with a host of groups across the country celebrating and holding Easter-themed events.
The Royal United Synod of Bishops in the country announced on Thursday it will host a religious easterside event at St Mary’s Cathedral in Oxford.
“We are happy to announce that this Easter holiday will be held in a church of the Royal United Church of England in Oxford, England,” the statement read.
We look forward to welcoming all to the event in the Royal Church of Oxford.” “
Our aim is to encourage Catholics to make the most of this Easter season, and to enjoy it as a time to show respect and love for each other and the Lord.”
We look forward to welcoming all to the event in the Royal Church of Oxford.
“The Easter message is one of several in the Church of the Saviour, an Easter tradition that has spread throughout the UK.
In addition to the Easter easter, the Church is celebrating a special day called the Jubilee Day, when all churches in England celebrate the anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, which occurred in 1549.
A special event is planned for Thursday at the Royal Methodist Church, in Reading.
As a result of the Jubilees celebrations, the British Catholic community has celebrated an extra Easter-related day this year.
The event is being held at St Peter’s Basilica, where a group of 50-60 members of the community will dress up in colourful costumes, wear hats, bejewelled jewellery and other decorations.
At St Marys, an easter-themed event will be hosted by a group from the Church’s community.
While the easter holiday in the US is a holiday celebrated by Catholics, the Easter season in the U.K. has also come under the spotlight as a way to mark the end of the year.
Last week, the UK government announced it would hold an Easter holiday, and a series of public events were planned for this week, including an Easter egg hunt.
