Gethsemane Prayer Vigil
As part of experiencing Holy Week, we invite you to join in as we hold Vigil with the reserve sacraments overnight before Good Friday. One hour slots are available beginning at 9.00pm on Maunday Thursday, March 29. We invite 2-4 people for each time slot. The Gethsemane Prayer Vigil will be in Bethlehem Chapel, and the gate from Jefferson Street will remain open overnight. We will have security present overnight as well.
As you pray and wait, we will have a table with resources to aid in your prayer time. Feel free to bring your own bible or prayer book, or some other resource if you would like. The Vigil will be a time for quiet reflection and meditation. At the end of your shift, others will arrive and continue the Vigil. The Vigil ends at 7.00am with the Good Friday Liturgy. Sign up for a time slot online.
