- This event has passed.
April 17 @ 5:00 am - 8:00 pm
The 5:00am liturgy begins in the dark with the lighting of the new fire, the procession of the new Paschal Candle and the chanting of the Exsultet, the hymn of victory of life over death. After a number of readings and psalms that take us through the Hebrew Scriptures and salvation history, we baptize new Christians and then hear the first Alleluia of Easter. We ring bells, bring the lights up and sing the Gloria in excelsis in response. Following the service, we share an Easter breakfast together.
