Holy Saturday is the last of the ‘Three Days.’ Begins at 8 pm. This is traditionally a day of quiet meditation as we contemplate the darkness of the world without a future and without hope apart from God and God’s Grace. It is also a time to remember family and friends who have died and await the Resurrection. This day ends with the celebration of all celebrations: the Easter Vigil.
We begin with the Fire and Water Ceremony in which our new Christ Candle is blessed. Then the Deacon sings the beautiful Exsultet. This is followed by a scriptural journey through salvation history. After the readings we have the Profession of Faith. Please note – this is a very beautiful and rich service, but also a rather long one.
