                  Good Friday Service for Children and Families
                        Have you ever been in the Garden of Gethsemane?
                           Have you laid down palms during a parade?
                               Have you ever seen a crown of thorns?
           If you have never done these things, come to our annual Children and Families’
  Good Friday service, April 6th at 4 pm in the St. Matthew’s sanctuary. Children go to the
 Garden of Gethsemane, remember the Last Supper, carry a cross and prepare themselves for
  the joy of Easter. It is a very powerful service for children and their families. Children con-
tinue to learn and mature as they come back year after year, deepening their understanding and
experience of Easter. Childcare is provided for infants, and an additional program is provided
                                       for 3 and 4 year olds.
                       We hope that you will join us for this very special service.

Keep Watch with Christ

To be on a vigil is to be wakeful for a purpose. To the ancient Romans, that could
be to stand guard, spy on the activities of a possible enemy, or prepare for a holy
occasion. Originally, the desire to take part in the holy occasion is so strong that
you can't wait for it to happen, which means you're so full of determination that
waiting and getting ready is all you can do, to the neglect of sleep or food. You
don't want to miss a second of it, you want to be there even for the preludes or
the first sunbeams.

Many congregations, following their Maundy Thursday liturgy (Agapé meal,
washing of feet, and/or stripping of the altar) hold a vigil, a watch until the start
of the Great Vigil of Easter late on Holy Saturday. At St. Matthew’s our Watch
will begin immediately following the Maundy Thursday liturgy (approximately
9:00pm) until the silence is broken for the Good Friday liturgy, followed by more
silence in vigil until 9:00am on Holy Saturday. A brief time of prayer will be of-
fered at this time.

The Watch presents each of us (individually, as a family or with a friend) with a
superb opportunity to experience faithfulness in prayer and discipleship. "Could
you not keep awake one hour?" were the words of Jesus in reproach to his hap-
less followers in the first Gethsemane. Ever since, his disciples of subsequent
generations have attempted to do better, and in some small way to make up what
was lacking in the first bunch.
                                                                                                        All are welcome to come forward to receive Holy Communion or a blessing.
