Easter Vigil

March 31

This Saturday night Mass concludes the and begins Easter with a bang. It’s the night that we move from the darkness of the tomb to the bright light of the Resurrection. It’s also the night that adults enter the Church.

At Mass, look for:

  • The Paschal (“Easter”) fire outside the church.
  • The procession of the Paschal candle through the church.
  • Singing of the ancient Exsultet hymn.
  • Between five and nine readings, with sung psalms in between.
  • Blessing of the baptismal waters.
  • Baptism and confirmation for new Catholics.
