The Easter Vigil & First Mass of Easter

Canons Park
Edgware

The Easter Vigil is the climatic celebration where we begin in darkness, lighting the Easter Fire, marking lighting the Paschal Candle which is then processed into church. We renew our Baptismal vows, and celebrate the first Eucharist of Easter. Much of the liturgy and ritual in the Solemn Triduum is among the most ancient in the church and lifts us into the presence of the God who offers us life in all its fullness.

Easter Day (Easter Sunday) is the most important day of the year for Christians. It is when they celebrate that three days after being killed, Jesus rose from the dead - called 'the Resurrection' and defeated evil forever! The Church is filled with flowers on Easter Day. These represent new life. Priests wear their best, brightest robes in celebration. Easter Day is the end of Lent and means the end of some people's fasting.
