The Easter Vigil in the Holy Night (Apr 16, 2022)

“Why do you seek the living one among the dead? He is not here, but he has been raised.”

The Sacred Paschal Triduum concludes with the Easter Vigil’s splendid liturgy in which our RCIA Elect are received into the Church through the Sacraments of Initiation.
