Solemn Easter Vigil Mass

Saturday, April 20, 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Location: Our Lady, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Cathedral

The Easter Vigil contains four components: Service of Light (Blessing of the Fire and Lighting of the Paschal Candle), Liturgy of the Word, Liturgy of Baptism and the Liturgy of the Eucharist.  

After a reflective and intense period of prayer during Lent, the Elect (those who have not been baptized) and Candidates (those who will make a profession of faith in the Catholic Church and receive the Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist) will become full members of the Catholic Church.  These Sacraments of Initiation are celebrated at parishes throughout the Diocese on this night.
