The Mass of Easter in Images, at Holy Family in Vancouver

The Mass of Easter Day is full of the images of Resurrection, Baptism and new life in Christ. The color of vestments and ornamentation is white, signifying the purity and joy, the joyful threefold alleluia, alleluia, alleluia returns, the Vidi Aquam, referring to the waters of Baptism, is chanted instead of the Asperges before Mass, and the Pascal Candle burns signifying Our Lord’s earthly presence, until His Ascension on Thursday 40 days from now.

The Fraternity’s Director of Development, Fr. Gregory Pendergraft, FSSP, joined with the clergy and faithful at Holy Family, our apostolate parish in Vancouver, in the celebration of Easter Sunday. Fr. Daniel Geddes, FSSP, celebrated the Mass, with Fr. Pendergraft as Deacon and Fr. Eric Deprey, FSSP, pastor of Holy Family, as Subdeacon.
