For some Door and Kewaunee County Christians, the end of Lent marks a new beginning. Saturday’s Easter Vigil services at area Catholic churches include the introduction of new members into their parishes, covering baptism and other sacraments of initiation. This comes only after candidates attend months of Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) classes. Father Daniel Schuster says one person at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Luxemburg will be confirmed into the faith during their Easter Vigil mass this year.
The evening Easter Vigil services are among the most important of the year for not just Catholics, but also members of the Lutheran, Methodist, and Anglican faiths. You can hear this year’s True Meaning of Easter from St. Mary’s of Luxemburg/Holy Trinity of Casco and the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help online with this story.
