Holy Saturday – The Great Easter Vigil

The vigil begins after sunset on Holy Saturday.  We light the new fire and the paschal candle.  The adornments that have been packed away for Lent are returned.  We read several passages from the Bible, recounting God’s story of salvation for all of humanity. We renew our baptismal vows and celebrate the first Eucharist of Easter. Bring a bell!  After the service, there will be a resurrection party!
