Easter Vigil

Saturday, March 31st at 7 pm

The Triduum refers to the Holy Three Days of Holy Week. We gather by night on Thursday to keep the New Passover, to receive the very Lamb of God who now comes to us in His body and blood. On Friday, we gather around the very hours in which Jesus hung upon the cross. Next comes Saturday, the Old Sabbath that Christ has now fulfilled by His great rest in the tomb, and as the sun goes down on that old Sabbath, we gather for the Easter Vigil, the transition from old to new, from Lent to Easter, from death to Life. And then Sunday–the empty tomb, the angels in white, the lilies, the trumpets. He is risen; we shall rise!
