More silence, less talk at St Theresa’s all-night vigil

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.
