The Easter Vigil in the Holy Night


On This Most Holy Night the Christian community celebrates the Resurrection. 

The newness of life that comes from The Risen Lord. 

The mystery of our faith is the death and the resurrection of our Lord. On this night Jesus is wedded to His Holy Church as death was defeated and life became victorious. 

Heaven rejoice. Earth rejoice. All people rejoice.



The Easter Vigil is arranged in four parts:


†       A brief ceremony of light.

†       The Liturgy of the Word, when the Church meditates on all the wonderful things God has done for his people from the beginning.

†       The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, when new members of the Church are reborn as the day of resurrection approaches.

†       The Liturgy of the Eucharist, when the whole Church is called to the table which the Lord prepared for his people through his death and resurrection.
