Holy Saturday/Easter Vigil, April 3, 2021
8:00 p.m. The Great Vigil of Easter
This is the first celebration of Easter, from the tradition of the next day beginning at sunset. The Great Vigil begins in darkness outside the church on the terrace. Each person is given a candle, lit from the Paschal Candle, as we listen to the lessons recounting God’s saving acts of creation, preservation, and redemption under the Old Covenant. In them are powerful symbols of water and fire; of death and rebirth; of Passover that was, is, and is yet to come. We hear the Word, let it possess us, and actively respond in prayer. Please bring your own candles and bells to worship in your home. Sermon by the Rev. Barbara Ballenger.
Limited in person attendance for the indoor portion of worship:
40 in the sanctuary and 20 in the parish hall
Leaflet coming soon
