The Watch begins at the conclusion of Maundy Thursday Eucharist & Altar Stripping and continues all night and into Good Friday. The Watch commemorates the time Jesus spent in the Garden of Gethsemane before he was arrested, and as he asked his disciples, “Can you not watch with me one hour?”
Parishioners volunteer to keep the watch in the sanctuary in one hour segments so that the continuous vigil of silent prayer is maintained.
There is a sign-up sheet in the Vestry House. For questions, please contact Carol Weisel.
