Holy Saturday Easter Vigil


Join us at Trinity Lutheran Church (Mt. Oliver) (601 Brownsville Rd., Pittsburgh 15210) at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 11.


The Easter Vigil is the service held in traditional Christian churches as the first official celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus. It is held in the hours of darkness between sunset on Holy Saturday and sunrise on Easter Day — most commonly in the evening of Holy Saturday — and is the first celebration of Easter.


On this most holy night, in which our Lord Jesus Christ passed over from death to life, we gather in vigil and prayer.  For this is the Passover of the Lord, in which through word and sacrament we share in his victory over death.  As we await the risen Christ, we hear the record of God's saving deeds in history, recalling how he saved his people in ages past and in the fullness of time sent his Son to be our Redeemer.
