Altar of Repose

The Gospels of both Matthew and Mark recount how Jesus, after celebrating the Passover with his disciples and instituting the Eucharist, went to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray. He took Peter, James, and John with him and three times asked them, “Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation.” Each time when he returned, he found them sleeping.

“So, could you not watch with me one hour?”

The parish is invited to keep watch with the Blessed Sacrament at the altar of repose from the end of the Maundy Thursday service until the morning of Good Friday. There is no limit to the number of people who may be present at any one time. All are invited to sign up for this unique opportunity to pray with Jesus and enter even more deeply into the mystery of Jesus’ love and passion.
