The Virtual Watch — Maundy Thursday to Good Friday

It has been our Lenten custom at Holy Apostles to keep watch through the night following our Maundy Thursday service up until our 11:00 am on Good Friday. It is possible to be present in prayer from your home. And, by so doing, we can continue the 3000-year-old tradition practiced by Jesus and the earliest apostles of praying the psalms.

Please join in committing to 30 minutes, or an hour if you are able, to pray the psalms Thursday, March 28 evening, through Friday, March 29 at 11:00 am as we watch and wait, and remember the many souls who have succumbed to the war in the Holy Land, Ukraine, to violence and oppression around the world.
