(Solemn Vigil, Lighting of the Easter Candle, Renewal of Baptismal Vows and First Eucharist of the Resurrection)

A short vigil of Bible Readings and prayers in the Parish Hall is followed by the blessing of the Easter fire and lighting of the Easter Candle. A slow procession into the darkened church follows, symbolizing the rising to New Life of He who is the Light of the World. Next comes the singing of the Easter Proclamation and the first Eucharist of Easter. In place of the Creed we all renew our baptismal vows praying that we may be reborn in the Christ who is among us.
