Easter Vigil worship
Saturday, April 20, 2019
We move from darkness to light through stories of God’s presence in salvation history. We celebrate the gift of baptism and receive new members into our congregation. We hear the Good News of Jesus Christ proclaimed!
Remember to bring a bell to worship, in order that you may ring it during the Easter proclamation!
“This is the night! This is our Passover with Christ from darkness to light, from bondage to freedom, from death to life. Tonight is the heart of our celebration of the Three Days and the pinnacle of the church year. The resurrection of Christ is proclaimed in word and sign, and we gather around a pillar of fire, hear ancient stories of our faith, welcome new sisters and brothers at the font, and share the food and drink of the promised land. Raised with Christ, we go forth into the world, aflame with the good news of the resurrection.” (from Sundays and Seasons: Year C, 2019)
