From The Easter Vigil At St Thomas Apostle-Woodhaven, NY

From 8:03PM until 10:24PM-EDT, The Dramatic Easter Vigil was celebrated at St Thomas Apostle-Woodhaven, Queens;

It was a Night where 4 Catechumens received the Sacrament of Baptism. A total of 8 People received both Confirmation and First Holy Communion;

Fr Francis Tumino, Director of The Brooklyn Diocesan Liturgy Committee, was The Primary Celebrant. He's also Pastor of St Thomas Apostle-Woodhaven;

My eyes grew moist with the 1st Singing of "The Gloria" and 1st Singing of "The Alleluia"(Celtic Version);

Mr William Thomas Smiddy, a known Concert Pianist and a Former Franciscan Brother, had an Expertly-Sung Mass with Full Choir, and a French Horn Player, to give an Orchestra Quality to The Mass;

3 of the Readings were done(Old Testament)-One was in English, One was in Spanish and One was in Polish. It was after the Prayer after the Polish Reading that "The Gloria" was sung;

In The Prayers Of Petition By The Faithful, The Response, "Lord Hear Our Prayer" was sung in English, Spanish and Latin(Deus Exaudinos);

Happy Ressurection;

Feliz Es Pascua;
