Easter Vigil Candle

As we prepare for joy of Easter this year, we would like to share a beautiful prayer activity for our entire parish (but especially our Religious Education Families), as provided to us from the Diocese of Green Bay with the help of the Order of Malta, a lay, religious order of the Roman Catholic Church.

This prayer and candle lighting is in recognition that this Easter will not be like any other and that many may feel alone and even forgotten, therefore we are inviting everyone to light a single candle on Holy Saturday at sunset in unity with all the paschal candles lit at the Easter Vigil around the world.

Reverend Eric Hollas, OSB, Conventual Chaplain ad honorem of the Order, has prepared the attached prayer.

Prayers for a Joyous and Blessed Easter
