Following the reenactment of the Last Supper on Thursday night, some parishes will hold outdoor services on Good Friday with one of the most popular being the continuous Stations of the Cross at The Monastery, Glen Osmond.

In St Francis Xavier’s Cathedral, a large crowd is expected for the Easter Vigil Mass where worshippers will gather outside for the burning of a fire and lighting of the Easter candle.

Holiday makers will boost numbers at churches in coastal regions and other tourist spots.

Vicar General Fr Dean Marin said the removal of density limits had come at the perfect time for Christians as they prepared to celebrate the most sacred time of the year.

“Nothing can replace being present to participate in the liturgy,” he said.

“That’s what being Church is all about.”

Times and venues for Easter services for the Adelaide Archdiocese and Port Pirie Diocese can be found at or on the Find a Mass App which can be downloaded for free from Apple or Google Play.

The latest information on COVID restrictions, including wearing of masks, is also available on the website.
