St. Ann Easter Times 2023
Easter Vigil (Begins outside the church) 8:30 pm
The Great Easter Vigil, the night before Easter Sunday, observes the most ancient tradition of the Church. The liturgy is begun in darkness, the Easter fire is kindled, the Paschal (Passover) Candle is lit and brought into the darkened church with the proclamation that Christ is our Light. We hear the story of our salvation proclaimed in numerous Scripture readings, we baptize and confirm our Catechumens and recall our own Baptismal commitments, and we celebrate the Risen Christ who is really and substantially present in the celebration of the Eucharist. This Great Vigil opens the Easter Season which will continue for 50 days and finds its conclusion on the Solemnity of Pentecost.
