Easter Vigil

Easter Vigil

The Easter Vigil is celebrated on the evening of Holy Saturday, the evening before the joyous Easter celebration. This draws us back to the great Hebrew Passover. Per Deuteronomy 6, it is not just about the first generation of slaves celebrating the Lord’s salvation and exodus from Egypt. Rather, we all celebrate the same rescue and the same meal as our very own. This is the thrust in the Easter Vigil. It is the story of Christ’s Passover, God’s salvation in the Word made flesh from beginning to end; that story is our story. Click on this event to learn more.
