Easter Vigil

April 20 @ 8:00 pm 9:30 pm EDT

One of the most beautiful, soul-stirring, ancient, and important liturgy (worship service) of the Christian Faith is the Easter Vigil! Like the Resurrection of Christ, which it celebrates, the Easter Vigil begins in the darkness of the night of Holy Saturday. A new fire is kindled outside and from it the great Paschal Candle and then our own candles are lit. We await our Master’s return with our lamps full and burning (Luke 12:35ff). The great hymn The Exsultet is sung, the sweeping story of salvation history is recounted, the Resurrection of Jesus is proclaimed (loudly!) with the ringing of bells. Then follows the year’s principal rites of Baptism.  Not to be missed!  –From the website of St. James of Jerusalem,   Long Beach, New York
