Good Friday Vigil from 12 noon to 3 p.m.

Christian tradition places the time of Jesus’ crucifixion from noon until 3 in the afternoon. At Old First, for these last few years, we’ve joined with Christians around the globe, marking this sacred time of memory.

The church will be open for any who wish to come as witnesses.

You may come into the Sanctuary for a few minutes. Or you may stay the whole time. You may sit in silence. Or pray. Or share a thought or reflection. During the three hours time, those present also take turns reading from the Passion narratives, the four Gospels’ stories of his suffering and death on the cross.
