Altar of Repose Vigil

goodfridayGarden and Altar of Repose Vigil  

Every year, after the Maundy Thursday service during Holy Week, the consecrated sacrament elements are taken to the Bride’s Room, and reset as the Gethsemane Garden and an Altar of Repose. A prayer vigil will then take place until 3 p.m. on Good Friday, the traditional time of the death of Jesus Christ on the cross. Parishioners may visit the Garden and Altar of Repose for prayer, relfection, and intercession at any time during the vigil. Reading and reflection resources will be available for you. Please check back in March, 2018 for sign-up details for our next Garden and Altar of Repose Vigil.
