Sign-up for an hour at "The Watch"

"...are you asleep? Could you not keep awake one hour?"  - Mark 14:37

It is tradition during the night between the Maundy Thursday and Good Friday liturgies to keep watch in hour long shifts remembering Jesus' time in Gethsemane and his plea to his disciples to "stay awake with me even one hour."  

From 9:00 pm Thursday evening to 7:00 am Friday morning, you are invited to sign up for a one hour shift to keep watch with Christ.  The presence of Jesus in the form of the reserve sacrament will be placed on the altar in Seibels Chapel.  Security will be present all night throughout the watch. From 12:00 am to 3:00 am, a Service of Tenebrae will be sung and attendees are invited to participate.

We invite you to experience a holy night of quiet reflection and powerful prayer.
