Holy Week and Easter is a liturgical Superbowl of sorts.  Being a liturgical musician, this is the busiest, and most rewarding time of year.  Those who are not Catholic most likely have never seen the beauty of the Easter Vigil. I didn’t get any photos during the bulk of the mass because I was working and focusing on the mass, but I hope you enjoy a peek into one parish’s (among thousands) celebration.

It all starts with a fire which is blessed and used to light the Pascal candle.

The light is then processed into the church where the parishioners light their own candles which were distributed before the start of the ritual.

Some photos of the sanctuary afterwards…
