6:00pm – The Easter Vigil – St. Mary’s
April 15, 2017 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
The Easter Vigil liturgy is the most beautiful liturgy in our Church. Celebrated on Holy Saturday evening, it is the dramatic Easter vigil liturgy that marks the beginning of Easter. We are awaiting our master’s return with our lamps full and burning, so that he will find us awake and seat us at his table (cf. Luke 12:35ff). All Catholics should try to attend this beautiful service. The vigil is divided into four parts:
- Service of Light,
- Liturgy of the Word,
- Liturgy of Baptism, and
- Liturgy of the Eucharist.
