 The Great Vigil of Easter,

Saturday, April 19- 7:00 pm
 
The new fire, our lighted candles, all the drama of moving from darkness to light, re-setting the altar, bringing in the flowers and decorating - the chaos and the joy of everybody doing it all together  while singing - the traditional Easter homily of St John Chrysostom with foot stamping and plenty of Alleluias! The Eucharist, bells ringing - Ah, who can resist?! 

   Remember to bring bells if you have any!
