The Easter Vigil Mass begins at dusk, when it is dark. The fire is started outside and the Christ candle is lit. “Christ our Light” is sung while all the candles are lit, which guide our way into the church. Much thanks for the beautiful pictures which were taken by Richell Chiu, parishioner.
The baptismal font is up and running with water flowing over the west side of the font into the immersion pool below. You can see the Elect in the purple garments lined up near the far steps of the baptismal pool. They will be the first ones baptized in this immersion pool!
The new Paschal Candle stand was delivered Saturday around noon. This year’s candle is bigger and heavier than our previous candles; it is now 3 inches in diameter. The center wood section was taken from a tree off of the church property meant to resemble the wood pillars inside the church.
