The small, diverse and vibrant parish in lower Northeast Philadelphia celebrated the Resurrection of the Lord during the Easter Vigil, Saturday night, April 20, led by their pastor, Father James Catagnus. It began with the service of light inside the dark church, continued with multiple readings from Scripture, included the sacraments of initiation as eight people were baptized Catholic and three entered fully into the church, and all celebrated the Eucharist together in the crescendo of the church’s liturgical year.
