Vigil at the Altar of Repose, 2023

with No Comments


MAUNDY THURSDAY, APRIL 6, 9 P.M. until dawn on Friday

The Vigil at the Altar of Repose will happen this year, starting upon the conclusion of the Maundy Thursday liturgy (around 8:45 p.m.) until the following sunrise. This ancient practice is inspired by Jesus' question to his disciples in the Garden of Gethsemene, "Could you not stay awake with me one hour?" As in recent years, this vigil will be an online offering, with a live video available all night. In addition, this year there is also a possibility of keeping watch at the altar in person, depending on the interest expressed by cathedral members.

If you are interested in spending an hour in prayer, please sign up for a slot here no later than Monday, March 20. After that date, an announcement will be made on whether the in-person vigil will be possible based on the available volunteers for the event. Contact Sacristan Michael Seewer with questions:

UPDATE: All slots were filled through 8 a.m.
