Beats Star Wars Any Day: How the Mass Transcends Time & Space
Ever wonder why we do all the things we do at Mass? In this hands-on talk, Deacon Joe will walk through the Mass and show how even the little things we say and do help make invisible reality visible and take us up into the greatest drama in our lives, in human history, and in the cosmos.

Blessing of the Easter Food | 10 a.m.
Years ago in Eastern Europe, Catholics abstained from eating meats and milk products, including eggs, during the 40 days of Lent. When Easter arrived and ended the fast, the people showed their joy and gratitude by taking the food to church for a blessing. These foods were the first to be eaten by the family on Easter Sunday morning, 
when they were given a place of honor on the festive Easter table. We encourage you to prepare a basket of traditional Easter foods (ham, lamb, or a molded butter lamb, sausage/kielbasa, eggs, Easter bread and pastries, horseradish, etc.) and bring it to the church on Holy Saturday morning for the blessing.
Vigil | 8 p.m.
