Hi, I've recently returned to the church after a VERY long time away. I've been bringing my 5 year old daughter with me, and she's been doing rather well. My question is this: I'd REALLY like to bring her with me to the easter vigil mass (my husband is a police officer and working that night). it starts at 8pm (her normal bed time). She doesn't typically melt down when tired, and on very rare occasions she can stay up rather late. She's never had a melt down due to being tired.
Do you think she'll do okay at easter vigil mass?
What do you typically think is an appropriate age for a child to start attending the easter vigil mass?
