Each year, St. Mary’s Altar Guild creates an indoor garden in St. Mary’s Chapel as a gift to the Parish. Following the Maundy Thursday evening liturgy, a Prayer Vigil begins in our candle-lit Chapel, keeping watch throughout the night until noon. There is a poster in the narthex where you can sign up for a time of prayer in the Chapel, or feel free to come as the Spirit moves you. The front doors will remain unlocked with lights on in the narthex, and there are prayer books, hymnals and plain paper available. Keeping watch in our “Garden of Gethsemane” can be a wonder-filled and grace-filled blessing.
