Easter Vigil
Time: Saturday, April 20 at 8:30 pm
Location: Church

Rev. Dennis J. Yesalonia, S.J., Presider

The Easter Vigil begins at 8:30 PM. The doors will open at 8:00 PM.

The Easter Vigil liturgy is the most beautiful liturgy in the Roman Catholic Church.

Celebrated on Holy Saturday after sunset, the Vigil Mass is regarded as the most important Mass of the liturgical year. It is replete with ancient and dramatic features that are unique to this worship service. Adults who have never been baptized are baptized at this liturgy. Baptized Christians of other denominations are received into the Church through the sacraments of Confirmation and first Eucharist. Baptized Roman Catholics who have never had religious instruction are confirmed and receive their first Eucharist. 

Because it is so rich with detail, the Vigil Mass usually lasts about three hours. 

Because the Vigil begins in complete darkness, no latecomers will be admitted into the Church until the end of the “Exultet.” Please be on time.
