On the night before he was put to death, Jesus asked his disciples, “Can ye not watch with me one hour?” (Matthew 26:40). As you prepare for Easter, spend an hour in the quiet presence of the living Jesus at our Altar of Repose in Gillespie Hall’s Pelican Vestibule.

The overnight watch is from 7 p.m. on Maundy Thursday (April 14) to 2 p.m. on Good Friday (April 15).
