Holy Week: Easter Vigil

The Easter Vigil liturgy is the most beautiful liturgy in the Roman Catholic Church. This walks through the Easter Vigil, and includes the words to the Exsultet.

Although celebrated Holy Saturday evening, it is the dramatic Easter vigil liturgy that marks the beginning of Easter. We are awaiting our master’s return with our lamps full and burning, so that he will find us awake and seat us at his table (cf. Luke 12:35ff). The vigil is divided into four parts:

  1. Service of Light,
  2. Liturgy of the Word,
  3. Liturgy of Baptism, and
  4. Liturgy of the Eucharist.

Please keep our RCIA candidates in your prayers at this time.

“Do not be afraid. Tell my brothers to go to Galilee and they will see me there.”

Although we can’t come together as a parish this evening, there are several live streams of the Easter Vigil Mass available.

Shrewsbury Cathedral’s Mass is at 8.15pm this evening, Saturday 11th April 2020.

Please visit Shrewsbury Cathedral’s live stream site here.

Alternatively, the same stream can be accessed on Church Services TV here.
