Auxiliary Bishop Michael Fitzgerald visited Holy Trinity Parish in Morrisville, Bucks County, to celebrate Mass for the Easter Vigil on April 19. The Mass contained four components. The first was the Service of Light including the blessing of the Easter fire and lighting of the paschal candle. In a completely dark church the pastor, Father John Eckert, lit the paschal candle which was then used to light the candles held by the people, filling the church with points of light. Next were the Liturgy of the Word and Liturgy of Baptism, where the congregation renewed their baptismal vows, and finally the Liturgy of the Eucharist. During the Mass Bishop Fitzgerald confirmed one adult candidate, Geoffrey Shoffstal, bringing him into full communion with the Catholic Church. (Video by Sarah Webb)
