Great Vigil of Easter—Saturday, April 15, 8 pm in the Mabley Garden
For many of us, this nighttime service is the best of the year. Gather in the garden for the lighting of the Paschal (Easter) candle and procession into the darkened church, an ancient hymn called the Exultet, readings that trace God’s redemption purpose during history, then a joyous, bell-ringing celebration of the resurrection. Bring a bell if you have one!
Feast of the Resurrection—Sunday, April 16, 8 am and 10 am.
Episcopalians like to think that we’re “Easter people,” and our Easter celebrations show it. Bring your bell again if you want for the 10 am service—we’ll be ringing them again.
