Mr Herriman said the service on Easter Sunday, April 5, was open to everyone and would be especially moving to those who had lost a loved one recently or had someone with a memorial at Pinnaroo.

He said there would be scripture readings, Easter songs and sharing of the Easter message.

�Years ago about 15 or so there was an annual Easter dawn service hosted by various churches within the community at Pinnaroo,� he said.

�We at St Anselm�s have decided to revisit this service with the assistance of the Kingsley Church of Christ.

�Having a service like this in a cemetery just as the day is dawning is a very powerful statement of the hope that we have as Christians of the resurrection of Jesus and his victory over death.�

He said the lake area in the memorial park was beautiful and perfect for this type of service.

�As we have not had the service for many years it is unknown how many will attend we are hoping somewhere around 100. It is early, 5.45am, but we have refreshments at the conclusion of the service at 6.30am.�

People are asked to enter Pinnaroo from Whitfords Avenue, Padbury, with gates to open at 5.15am, and to bring torches and chairs. The service will take place lakeside at Zamia Court. For more information, call Mark McCracken on 0403 368 248.
