THE GREAT VIGIL OF EASTER

8:00 PM - The Church

This ancient and powerful service begins outdoors in the Courtyard with the lighting of the Holy Fire, symbolizing the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. The service continues inside the church, where we remember God's saving acts throughout history to rescue and save his people. This is a joyous service that begins in the dark and ends in the joyful light of Easter. It features Holy Communion, Sermon, and beautiful music provided by organ and choir. This service lasts about two hours. 

Nursery: Provided for ages 0-4. Our nursery is located in the St. Alban's Outreach Center, next to the Church buildings. Look for the red doors on 30th St.
