Maundy Thursday Liturgy, March 24, 6:30 pm

Altar of Repose, March 24, 8:00 pm – Midnight

Can you not pray with me one hour?”  This was our Lord’s plea to his disciples on the night of His betrayal and pending His crucifixion on Good Friday. Our Lord poses this question to us as well.   May we assent to our Lord’s cry for us to pray with Him.  Like Simon of Cyrene who bore our Lord’s cross on our Lord’s march to Calvary, what for Simon had begun as a compulsory task became a delight and joy.  Please come and spend an hour before the Altar of Repose in silence and in quiet reflection spending time with Our Lord.  In that time with Him, you will receive His peace which passes all understanding in the midst of your own trials. A sign-up sheet is available on the table at the back of the church for those who wish to pray at the Altar of Repose.  There is no limit to the number of those who can pray during the assigned hours from 8:00 p.m. – Midnight.
