THE EASTER VIGIL, Saturday, April 19

This is the original Easter service. A new fire is kindled, symbolizing the resurrection of Christ. We carry it into a darkened church, where under candlelight we hear the story of our salvation read from Holy Scripture. Then the lights come on and we loudly proclaim the resurrection and celebrate the first Holy Eucharist of Easter.
