“In the darkness, fire is kindled,” and then, “On this most holy night, in which our Lord Jesus passed over from death to life,” we journey from darkness to light, death to life, in this ancient and dramatic service. It ends with the Easter acclamation: CHRIST IS RISEN!, followed by the first Eucharist of Easter. Then there’s a festive reception to end our Lenten fast.
