All-night Vigil before The Blessed Sacrament


From Maundy Thursday evening through Good Friday morning we keep watch before the Blessed Sacrament at the Altar of Repose. This commemorates for us the disciples being asked to watch and pray with Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemine the night before he was crucified. And Jesus said to Peter, ‘So you could not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.’ Mt. 26: 40-41.  So that we can make certain there are at least two people keeping watch for each hour of the Vigil, please print your name on the poster in the narthex of the Church.  This way we can be certain that there is always someone before the Blessed Sacrament and we can insure peoples’ safety.  To have your name added please email the church office.
