The Easter Eve at St. Bart’s

Sat, April 20, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm

APRIL 20 (afternoon and evening): EASTER EVE †
4 pm  Children’s Baptisms in the Chapel

7 pm  The Great Vigil of Easter in the Church, with festive reception following *
Drawn from ancient sources, the Great Vigil is the most dramatic liturgy of the year. We begin by lighting the new fire, and then hear the timeless stories of our salvation history. We renew our baptismal vows by candlelight. Then, as the church is flooded by light, we sing the first “Alleluia” of Easter and joyously celebrate the Eucharist. Bring your own bells and noisemakers! A festive reception follows. (Note: We will have incense at this service.)


* childcare available
† free parking for services
We provide parking free of charge for our Palm Sunday, Easter Vigil, and Easter Day services. The garage is located at 136 East 51st Street, on the south side of East 51st Street, between 3rd and Lexington Avenues. Ask an usher or someone at St. Bart’s Central for a voucher. Vouchers are valid for 12 hours or until midnight, whichever comes first.  (Because some have asked, please note that each redeemed parking voucher costs St. Bart’s $15.)
