Easter Vigil with RCIA

Resurrection of the Lord – April 4, 2015

Presider:   Rev. Barry J. Anwender

Mary at Tomb

The Easter Vigil celebration is the most important of all celebrations because on this night, the world was redeemed.  It is the Lord’s vigil, celebrated in honour of his resurrection. It is known as the “mother of all vigils.”  There are four parts to the liturgy.  The vigil this year is abundantly special at Blessed Sacrament Parish because Loretta, Hansini & Lief are celebrating the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) to enter into full communion with the Catholic Church.

Part I – Rite of Light

The first part, the Rite of Light, reminds us in several ways that Christ is the light of the cosmos.  We begin with the blessing of the new fire and the lighting of the paschal candle. During the procession with this candle, we are called to respond by singing, “Thanks be to God”, when we hear the words, “Christ Our Light.”  Our own candles are lit from this one candle.  Then comes the singing of the Easter Proclamation, which points out how great the Messiah is who has redeemed us from our sin.

Part II – Liturgy of The Word

The second part, the Liturgy of the Word, is the telling of the story of our salvation history.  We begin with the story of the creation, the first reading from Genesis.  We continue with the reading from Exodus, next we hear the reading of the Prophet Isaiah.  A responsorial Psalm and a prayer will follow each of these readings.  Before we hear the first New Testament reading, from Paul to the Romans, we sing the Glory to God.  Before the Gospel we sing the solemn alleluia, a word, which we have not heard since Ash Wednesday.  We then hear the story of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead.

Part III – Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA)

The third part of the liturgy is devoted to the blessing of new water and baptism, reminding us of our own baptism.  Adult catechumens are baptized and candidates are welcomed into the parish community.  After their profession of faith with the assembly and their confirmation, we renew our own baptismal promises, since in baptism each one of us shared in the dying and rising of Jesus through our own dying to sin and rising to new life. The sprinkling is a reminder of the water of our baptism.

Part IV – Liturgy of The Eucharist

The fourth part is the Liturgy of the Eucharist and we now move from fasting to seven weeks of Easter feasting.  The new neophytes, who were just baptised and received into full communion with the Church, will share for the first time in the sacred banquet of the Eucharist, and we all go forth singing alleluias.

Canada Day Livestream

           First Livestream Broadcast               for the Archdiocese of Regina

Livestream & Camera Operator:  Rev. Barry J. Anwender

Blessed Sacrament Parish celebrated its annual Canada Day Mass with Archbishop Daniel J. Bohan presiding.  This event is a joint effort of the Father Hugonard 4th Degree Assembly of the Knights of Columbus, the Father John Riffel 4th Degree Assembly of the Knights of Columbus, Santo Nino Council of the Knights of Columbus and Blessed Sacrament Parish.   The Canada Day Eucharistic celebration highlights the Knights of Columbus fourth pillar of patriotism.

 “The Order is dedicated to the principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.”

This year July 1st was preceded by three days of torrential rains that resulted in severe flooding across several Regina subdivisions, as well as numerous municipalities throughout the south and eastern regions of Saskatchewan.  The rain put a damper on the traditional pancake brunch with sausages, eggs and coffee, as well as the free face painting and popsicles for children that were planned to precede the Mass.  Despite the rain and cancelled outdoor festivities, Blessed Sacrament church was packed with visitors who gathered to celebrate Mass with Archbishop Bohan.

 “Blessed Sacrament Church is the oldest Roman Catholic Church building in Regina, and the city’s second oldest church still in use.”

In the spirit Regina’s Pioneer Catholics, this year’s Canada Day Mass was also the first event in the archdiocese to be broadcast as a livestream video feed on the Internet.  The Archdiocese and Blessed Sacrament parish websites promoted the Canada Day event with URL links to Livestream.com who hosted the internet broadcast. Livestream.com reporting that 150 viewers watched the live video of the Mass from their computers, mobile phones and tablets.

 “I had indeed noticed this on our website and took some pleasure in thinking about our “oldest Roman Catholic Church building in Regina ” leading the way here in things like Livestream … !!!!! The Livestream viewers continue to grow … the quality is wonderful–so clear—and a pleasure to watch.”        ~ Loretta

“Saw the beautiful Canada Day Mass celebration.  THANK YOU for filming it so all can enjoy … a spectacular end product, the sound was clear as a bell and your church was showcased beautifully.  Blessed Sacrament really is a beautiful church.”        ~ Sharon

Blessed Sacrament parish is home to Catholic immigrants from many countries.  Several parishioners reported that their relatives watched the Mass on the internet from different provinces in Canada, as well as various countries around the globe.  One week after the event, Livestream.com reported that 250 viewers had watched the archived event.  You can watch the original livesteam broadcast of the Canada Day Eucharistic Celebration by clicking/tapping on the graphic banner below:
