The Great Vigil of Easter, March 31st Saint Matthew's at 7pm
The Easter Vigil is the climax of the Christian Year, and it is the most ancient service in the Church. This beautiful liturgy begins with the lighting of the "New Fire" of Easter in a darkened church. The church gradually moves from darkness to light over the course of the first part of the service. This service also includes the chanting of the Exsultet, a majestic song of praise intoned by a single voice.
