Nightwatch: Sign up for an hour in the Reception Room. It has been the historical and traditional practice of the People of God to keep watch from the end of the Maundy Thursday Service, commemorating the Last Supper, through the night, until 12 noon, at the point in his- tory when Christ was crucified. You may participate in this ancient tradition by keeping watch, in hour intervals, through the quiet time of the night, from Maundy Thursday evening, until 12:00 pm on Good Friday. This will be a time when you can come and pray, meditate, watch, or do whatever you wish in quiet adoration of the Passion of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
