This year was my first Easter Vigil ever. That might seem strange to some, but growing up in a big family made staying up so late with young ones pretty rare. The same is the case now. However, two of our CCD students, their father and another gentlemen were entering the Church, so Mrs. Curley and I went to the Easter Vigil. It was worth it. And the joy on the face of those entering the Church almost made me wish I was a convert also.
Earlier in the day the kids with some friends put on their annual Passion Play. Pictures may follow in a week or so. Then we took the older boys fishing at the creek down the street-but with the hot weather it soon turned into a swimming expedition.
Easter morning was joyful as usual. Mass at St. Catherine's followed by a big breakfast, Easter baskets, singing, etc.
He is Risen!
