He is risen!

For the first time in history, the faithful across the Diocese of Evansville, the Province of Indiana and the whole U.S. celebrated Holy Week and Easter liturgies from home, participating in live-streams from their parishes. In the first photo, St. Benedict Cathedral Rector Benedictine Father Godfrey Mullen watches Bishop Joseph M. Siegel light the Paschal Candle at the beginning of the April 11 Easter Vigil Mass at the cathedral. In the second photo, Bishop Siegel censes the altar and the gifts during the 9 a.m. Mass on Easter Sunday, April 12, at the cathedral.
