Every Maundy Thursday, from the end of 6.00 pm Solemn Mass to the beginning of the Good Friday Solemn Liturgy at noon, we keep watch at the Altar of Repose in the St Joseph’s Chapel.
For the past few years, we have been joined by a number of historical re-enactors (some of whom are members of our parish) who keep vigil with us from about 10.00 pm (after Tenebrae) until dawn, some of them in full armour!
The Guild of St Michael is an organization dedicated to finding ways for re-enactors and martial artists to help those in need. They are keeping vigil with us in order to raise money to support refugees and the homeless, including our own refugee sponsorship team (the Manning-Ulster Refugee Project) and our Community Dinner Program.
If you are interested in donating, or just want to know more, please visit A Knight of Vigil.
