A little background: I converted from Anglicanism last year, but my family is still part of the Church of England parish I used to attend. Since I’m moving away soon, my parents (I’m only 20) are asking me to come with them to my former parish to say goodbye to everyone on Easter Sunday.
Now, I know we can attend the Mass on Saturday night and fulfil our obligation in normal circumstances. Does that apply to Easter too, though? At the moment I’m telling my parents “I can’t come, I need to attend Mass on Sunday”, but they asked me to check whether I can go on Saturday evening for Easter. So, question number 1 is: Does the Vigil on Saturday fulfil the Easter Sunday obligation?
Question no. 2 is: Even if the first question is answered in the affirmative, it still feels a bit odd to be in a Protestant church for the highest feast on the Church’s calendar. Should I go?
