Missing St Theresa’s monthly First Friday vigil in Woodbrook is not an option for the dozens of people from various parishes who make space in very busy lives to spend a night with Jesus. Or part of it.
Perched on the northwestern fringe of the hotspot Ariapita Avenue stretch, St Theresa’s first began holding First Friday all-night vigils back in 2018 to pray for youth—in particular, the resurgence of a strong youth element in the parish.
It begins with Friday evening Mass at 6 and ends with 6 a.m. Mass on Saturday. In-between, we simply give God space within which to work, and not just inside the church walls.
