The Great Vigil of Easter    April 16, 2022

This ancient service leads us from death to life with Christ through fire, light, word, water, and bread and wine.
The service begins at 7 pm with the lighting of the new fire on the lawn outside the front of the church.
The congregation then moves into the parish hall and by candlelight listens to the ancient stories of our faith
before processing into church for the reaffirmation of our baptismal vows.
The Easter celebration begins with the joyful ringing of bells and the triumphant sound of the great organ.
The celebration continues with a procession of light from the church into the parish hall for the Easter feast.
We encourage families and children to join us for this wonderful ancient service.
