9:00 pm The Great Vigil and First Mass of Easter with the Sacrament of Holy Baptism
The Holy Saturday Rite is the link between the solemnity of Good Friday and the celebration of Easter. It is a drama of the creation and the redemption, beginning as a solemn night, with the church in near darkness. We see God gradually revealed to us in Light (The Liturgy of the New Fire); in Word (the Prophetic readings); in Water (the blessing of the Font, Baptism, and the renewal of Baptismal vows); and in Food, as we celebrate our salvation and new life in Christ with the first Mass of Easter.
