Easter Vigil

April 19, 2019 at 6:00 PM

St. Luke's Episcopal Church
110 E. 17th
Ada, OK 74820

Join us for an Easter Vigil service at 6 p.m. The Great Vigil of Easter is the first Easter service!  We hear numerous stories from scripture, and an ancient prayer called the Exsultet, and through them all, we hear the history of who we are.  In it, we begin in darkness and we move to light.  We experience, with Christ, his movement from death to life.  At St. Luke's this year, we will baptize a member in darkness, and immediately after baptism, we will proclaim that Christ is risen.  In baptism, we move from death to life, and all Easter services remind us that through the power of God in the waters of baptism we are counted as not dead, but alive.  The Great Vigil is longer than some services, but it is beautiful, different, and important to how we understand the resurrection.  I encourage you to join us this year, especially as we celebrate a baptism!
