The Easter Vigil
in the Holy Night

March 30, 2024

On Holy Saturday, after sunset, the Church gathers to celebrate the "mother of all vigils", the Easter Vigil of the Resurrection of the Lord.  The Mass begins with the blessing of the Easter Fire and the Paschal candle, which is brought into the church to be greeted by the gathered Assembly.  We listen to the Word of God, remembering the sacred stories of our salvation from the creation of the world to the resurrection of Christ.  New members are intiated into the Church through the waters of Baptism and the Anointing of Confirmation.  The newly initiated "neophytes" then join the community in the Eucharist and the celebration ends in a procession of joy!

Christian Appalachian Project

Volunteers from our Parish work with the Christian Appalachian Project, traveling as missionaries to Eastern Kentucky for one week each year. They assist where the need is greatest, including home repairs, painting, building handicap accessibility ramps, replacing doors and windows, and other adjustments to homes that will ensure a safe and comfortable environment for residents of the area.

During the summer, the Religious Education Office sponsors a week-long "Bible Camp" for children ages 10 and under.  Announcements are made a few weeks before Bible School begins, so watch for details and information!
