Holy Saturday - Easter Vigil with Exsultet, Baptism Renewal

In the Holy Saturday Easter Vigil we anticipate and celebrate the coming of the first light of the Resurrection on Easter Morning.  During this service the ancient Easter proclamation, the Exsultat, is sung.

On this day it is also the historic tradition of the Church to baptize new members of the Church who have been preparing for this day during the season of Lent.  Those already baptized renew their baptismal vows in this service.
