First off, congratulations!!! VIVAT!  secondly, If y'all will forgive a
newbee question, but what is a vigil? I have an image of the soon-to-be-peer
off in a dark castle or deep forest in meditation over their advancement.
Sort of like Jesus in the desert. Faceing  down their temptations and human
weaknesses to emerge calm, cool and collected.  
What is the SCa's version of a vigil? what traditions have evolved around this?
