This Triduum liturgy concludes on Holy Saturday at the Easter Vigil with some of the oldest prayers and rituals in the Christian tradition. The liturgy is made up of four parts. The first being the Service of Light: A fire is kindled in the back of the church, marking the resurrection of Christ sometime in the night. From this fire, the Paschal Candle is lit and then the congregant’s candles. The second part is the Service of the Word where we hear the story of salvation told through the reading of lessons. Thirdly, the liturgy unfolds with baptisms and our own recommitment to Christ, His church, and His mission in the world. Finally, the liturgy concludes with the first Eucharist of Easter.
Take part in the story that changes everything by holding a candle, hearing the story of God's people, renewing your baptismal vows, and taking communion.
