The Easter vigil at St. Pius X Parish.
At St. Pius X Parish was blessed to initiate and welcome 60 people into its church at the church’s first English/Spanish bilingual Easter Vigil Mass.
The 30 baptized included adults from the parish’s Spanish RCIA and English RCIA, children and youth from RCIC, and a few younger siblings. A large font allowed two priests, pastor Father Sean Weeks and Father Peter Siamoo, to simultaneously immerse the catechumens. In specially constructed dressing rooms the newly baptized changed into white garments, and joined another 30 candidates for the celebration of Confirmation and Eucharist.
A few minutes after midnight, the standing room-only congregation welcomed them with a reception.
