This is a time when we can come together to be with Jesus and reflect upon the Passion: His prayers in the Garden of Gethsemane, the betrayal, arrest, trial, flogging and road to Calvary. Last year people signed up for a one hour "watch" and posted prayers, poems, their own reflections or inspiring pieces of music on the American Cathedral Facebook page.

Contact the Parish Coordinator if you would like to take part and sign up for an hour between the end of the Maundy Thursday evening service and sunrise Good Friday:
