Sacred Watch of the Passion

Thursday, April 1, 8 p.m. – Midnight
(in person, Facebook Live, Zoom)
Midnight – 8:30 a.m.
(Facebook Live, Zoom)
In the Garden of Gethsemane when Jesus found the disciples sleeping, he said to Peter, “What, could ye not watch with me one hour?”
In response, we will keep watch at the Side Altar, virtually and in person, from the end of the Maundy Thursday Liturgy until 8:30 a.m. Friday morning. This time is to be used in prayer and meditation in the sacramental presence of our Lord.
The time is divided into thirty-minute segments. During the time slots from 8 p.m. until midnight, you may choose to keep watch in person at the side altar, one person or family group at a time. Spaces that are not filled in person during this time and all time slots after midnight are available via Zoom. When you arrive either virtually or in person, you will find a prayer that you will be asked to read at the beginning of your watch.
The entire watch will be broadcast on Facebook live and on Zoom simultaneously. There is no limit to the number of people who can be present at any time on either platform. You may come when you are able and stay as long as you wish.
