Easter-rotator-photo-300x200A time to reflect on the Liturgy of the Easter Vigil.
Why all those readings? What is the significance of lighting a fire? Why do we wait until that night to baptize adults? It’s a long enough as it is! We will delve into the meaning of this most solemn Liturgy and have time for quiet reflection. Approach Easter with new energy and meaning!
