WHAT IS VIGIL?
VIGIL typically means to keep watch or to pray. The monthly parish VIGIL nights are an opportunity for us to come together as a parish outside of the mass and worship and be in community.
WHY SHOULD I GO TO VIGIL?
VIGIL is a night designed to create an authentic personal Encounter with the love of God. Pope Francis says, “I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ.” Notice he doesn’t say I invite just the baptized, or just those who haven’t encountered Jesus personally before, but ALL. You should come because this is your chance for that renewed encounter.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT TO HAPPEN?
The night will begin with a brief welcome from our MC, and then we will hear a 25 minute formation talk on how we encounter God’s love. We will then have 1 hour of adoration, reconciliation, and prayerful religious music. The night will conclude with a time for fellowship.
WHO SHOULD GO TO VIGIL?
VIGIL is meant for absolutely everyone. It doesn’t matter if you are a parishioner, non-parishioner, old or young, Catholic or non-Catholic, or anything in between! These nights are meant to be accessible and powerful for anyone of all ages, backgrounds, and faith lives.
