Vigil is about encountering Christ and learning from the stories of others on the same path of discipleship. Come for an evening of worship, witness and reconciliation. Vigil is held the 2nd Tuesday every month, 6:30-8:00pm at St. Eugene. Childcare is provided.
What is Vigil?
Vigil typically means to 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, prayerful religious music and at the end of the night, 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.
