I'm going to be a candidate at the Easter Vigil this year. There will be 4 Candidates and 2 Elect (to be baptized).
Can someone please tell me how the vigil progresses? Is there any parts I need to totally memorize? We have a retreat during the day until 3:00pm, then the vigil will be at 8:00pm that evening. It will be bilingual since we usually have several regular masses, and one is always bilingual, so I expect it will be very crowded.
Is it ok to invite a couple of friends from outside the Church? It's a very large Church.
I know this is a lot of questions, and I'd be thankful for even just a few answers.
Maybe I worry too much, but I'm so excited. It seems like "forever ago" when I made the decision to become a Catholic, and after all of these studies, I feel like it's finally happening.
