The Great Vigil of Easter – 7:00p
The Great Vigil of Easter is a series of multiple services set end-to-end, each building on the former, until finally Easter formally arrives. As a service of watching that ushers in the celebration of our Lord's resurrection, the vigil of Easter is comprised of six parts: Service of Light (a candlelight service begun outside with procession into the sanctuary), the Service of Readings, the Service of Holy Baptism, the Service of the Word, the Service of Prayer, and the Service of the Sacrament.
The best way to gain the full effect of this great liturgical Feast is to witness it from the start of the Triduum on Maundy Thursday through Good Friday, when the Church is at its darkest and most somber, to the celebration of Easter on Saturday evening. We go from the deepest depths to the highest heights in just three days, as the liturgy of the Church follows Christ Himself through death to resurrection. While this service is a bit longer than the typical service you're used to, it will be worth it!
