Photos 2006 - Holy Week: Saturday Easter Vigil Procession


Fr. Perrone carries the Paschal candle, and in the first photo is seen standing still as the altar boys continue moving in such a way as to create a trailing flame behind him.

In the second photo, the priests and altar boys light the candles of the laity in the pews and the flame begins to fan out in the church.

Then, parishioners in the front half of the church received the flame from priests and altar boys as they processed. In the final photo, we see the full spectrum of candles lighting up the church. A closer look at the altar boys reveals they are all facing the pulpit to the left where the Word is being read.
