Maundy Thursday prayer vigil
Thursday, March 29, 2018, 7:30 PM - Friday, March 30, 2018, 7:00 AM
Thursday, March 29, 7:30 pm to Friday, March 30, 7 am.
"Stay with me . . . watch and pray"
Devote an hour or more to prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane with Jesus on the Thursday of Holy Week, March 29th. Starting immediately after the Maundy Thursday Service and continuing until 7 a.m. the next morning on Good Friday, parishioners will sign up for an hour at a time to sit in the church and pray. Bring a journal, a reflection book or even an instrument, and sit with others as we “stay awake with Jesus.” Look for the sign-up chart in the parish hall.
We need to have two people for each hour. The church doors will be locked and opened when you knock on the door for your time. Those who have done this in previous years have found this to be a moving and spiritual time. Consider inviting a friend to join you in your shift. Please contact Holly Swartz if you have any questions or for more information.
A sign-up sheet is available in the parish hall, or click "RSVP" below. The church doors will be locked throughout the night to provide security. For more information, contact Vigil Coordinator Holly Swartz at .
