8:00 pm Bishop Michael Hanley will preside and preach at this service that begins with the lighting of the New Fire of Easter, hearing the ancient accounts of God’s saving work in the world and moving from Lent to Easter, from death to resurrection. We are hosting Father Robert Williams and parishioners from neighboring St. James’s so please bring your bells to the Vigil to welcome them and Easter with a joyful noise of praise and thanksgiving. With this sound and the shout of “Alleluia! Christ is Risen!” we begin the first Eucharist of Easter.
