"As we look forward, O Lord,
to the coming festivities,
may we serve you all the more eagerly
for knowing that in them
you make manifest the beginnings
of our redemption.
Through Christ our Lord."
Our Vigil is at 6:00 pm with our young people and the Young Voices Choir and a throng of people. I will join with the choir in telling the story of that first Christmas night before we begin the liturgy, and we, as a joyful family of faith, will look forward to the coming festivities with gladness and hope.
