Question from Mark on 3/22/2008:
Dear Fr. Bob,
Does attending Easter Vigil Mass on Saturday evening count as your Easter Sunday obligation? I have been attending the tridium masses for over 15 years during holy week (Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Vigil on Saturday) but usually do not attend Mass on Easter Sunday. Again, does Easter Saturday Vigil Mass satisfy the Easter Sunday holy day of obligation?
Thank you, and God Bless. Happy Easter!

Mark, Yes attendance at the wonderful Easter Vigil ceremonies does satisfy your Easter Sunday obligation. Fr. Bob Levis
