Roman Catholics do not have Mass on Holy Saturday. A simple, short ceremony is typically held for Święconka in the morning or early evening. Having grown up in a Polish Catholic family who maintained many traditions, I was surprised at that error. (Mass may be said in the evening — Vigil Mass — that will basically be the Easter Mass but Święconka isn’t part of that Mass.)
