Vigil at the Cross 2021
For the past 8 years, we have done a vigil at the Holy Cross, a continuous presence of prayer in our church that lasts nearly 30 hours. We are hoping to return to doing this in-person for 2021 but we will keep everyone updated as we may offer a hybrid version.
There will be 15 minute slots of time from Holy Thursday night at 10:00 p.m., when the vigil will begin until 9:00 a.m. when the Royal Hours will begin.
The vigil will then continue from 11:15 a.m. on Good Friday until 3:00 p.m. when the Apokathelosis begins.
The vigil will continue at the tomb of Christ from 4:30-7:00 p.m. when the Lamentations begins.
You can sign up for as many 15 minute slots as you wish. We'd like to see at least one person in each slot. Please let us know if you have any questions.
You'll be reading out of the Psalter, which you can find HERE. Or you can simply read from a translation of your choice at home.
Anyone reading this message is welcome to participate, you need not be a member of St. John Greek Orthodox Church in Tampa, FL.
