Holy Saturday – Easter Vigil
April 8 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm CDT
A vigil Mass is held after nightfall on Holy Saturday, or before dawn on Easter Sunday, in celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. This is called the Easter Vigil: the most glorious, beautiful, and dramatic liturgy for the Church.
The vigil is divided into four parts and lasts about 1 ½ hours:
- the Service of Light
- the Liturgy of the Word
- the Liturgy of Baptism
- the Liturgy of the Eucharist
For those unable to attend in person, you can attend the livestream on our YouTube Channel.
