I had the privilege of being the official photographer for the Easter Vigil Mass last night at St Thomas Aquinas parish in Alpharetta, Georgia. A group of about 60 people were welcomed into the church during this marathon of the catholic church’s most holy ceremonies. The mass began at 9:00 PM with a bonfire outside and proceeded through just over 3 hours of readings, music, and sacraments, ending just after midnight of Easter morning.
Having gone through the RCIA process which initiates new members into the Catholic church myself, the Easter Vigil is always a special event for me. Being a witness to all these other people joining in full communion with the church is a fantastic way to celebrate Easter.
Prayers and good wishes to all the neophytes and their friends and family and to all believers throughout the world on this beautiful Easter day!
