Will the City Folk Club be meeting on Good Friday?

Short answer:

An extended response of dubious interest follows ...

Have you ever noticed that those Easter public holidays always seems to creep up on you unawares?
They always catch you by surprise.

Easter never falls on the same date every year because some learned clerics convened in Nicaea in AD325.
They conceived a movable feast based on a bizarre calculation relating to the paschal full moon.
This 'paschal full moon' is a fabrication of spiritual imagination that bears no logical relationship to actual lunar phases.
It follows an 84-year cycle in the Western Church.
It's different in the East.

It became even more complicated when Pope Gregory XIII invented a new calendar in 1582.

Is this simply a conspiracy to confuse the masses?

Understanding all this is just one of the many mysteries that can only be fully embraced by those individuals blessed by apostolic succession and who have had ecclesiastical authority thrust upon them ...

"May God forgive you for what you have done to me!"

What has all this got to do with the City Folk Club?
Below is all you need to know ...

On Friday the 29th day of March, in the year of our Lord, 2013, the CITY FOLK CLUB will meet as usual at the Guide Hall.

Habemus Papam!
