Holy Saturday

The Great Vigil of Easter begins on Saturday, March 31, at 9pm in the churchyard with “The Lighting of the New Fire of Easter” and then continues in the church. Bishop Hollerith will be baptizing, confirming and receiving members into the Episcopal Church during this service. This is the most important celebration of the entire year — the one from which all others either take their meaning or to which all others look forward.  Proceeding from darkness to light, from silence to alleluia, it is the symbolic dramatization of the story of God’s action on our behalf. It is the Christian Passover, for it celebrates the passing from death to life, from sin to grace. The story of the Exodus is central to the Liturgy of the Word: Baptism is the means of the full realization of redemption; Holy Communion is the promise of the glory that shall be ours with our Risen Lord.  This service includes incense.
