[quote=Steve-o]Really?!? I’m being Confirmed at Easter Vigil and I’m told that that Mass doesn’t begin until 7 pm! I’m in for a memorable night, indeed! FIVE hours?!?
The Easter Vigil doesn’t have to last until after midnight. It just has to be after dark. Remember, the vigil starts at sundown, and then liturgically, it is Sunday. Depending on how many are being confirmed, I would say it should be between 2 to 2.5 hours long.
Say a prayer for whoever has to carry the Easter candle in, they are heavy.
Yours in Christ,
