Before dawn on Easter morning, a crowd gathers outside the Cathedral in the gloom. Some words and suddenly a fire bursts into life. Candles are lit and the people carry the light into the Cathedral, dispelling the darkness, bringing delight and inspiring faith. A deafening fanfare from the organ and the people shout "Alleluia! Christ is risen!" He is risen indeed and you are welcome in St Edmundsbury Cathedral to celebrate God's presence and know the hope no darkness can defeat..
