Easter Vigil Fire

Our scouts prepared, lit and secured the Easter Vigil fire at tonight’s Mass for our chartering church, St. Peter’s Catholic Church.  The scouts showed their scoutcraft, reverence, cheerfulness and friendliness as they prepared the fire and greeted parishioners entering the church.  Great care was taken with preparation and execution of the fire, as the liturgy began with congregants out on the front steps watching the scouts bring the fire to life so it could be blessed by Fr. Byrne and then be the source of flame for the lighting of the Paschal Candle.  There was no time for a do-over, and because of the scouts’ preparation, no need for one.
