The Great Vigil of Easter and First Mass of Easter

The liturgy begins with the lighting of fire in darkness and the proclamation, 'The Light of Christ'! That light is welcomed by an ancient hymn, the 'Exultet,' calling the whole Cosmos to rejoice in the light. The Vigil moves into the First Mass of Easter, followed by the Resurrection Feast - a full banquet begun in the wee hours of the morning and celebrated until Dawn. 

Address by poet-professor Dr. Alyda Faber. The Chapel Choir sings music by J. Langlais, G.P. da Palestrina, P. Halley, and J. Taverner, with organ postlude by J. Alain. 

​Service begins at 11:00 PM, but come early to get a seat.
