Maundy Thursday

April 13, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Maundy Thursday is the Thursday before Easter, believed to be the day when Jesus celebrated his final Passover with his disciples. Most notably, that Passover meal was when Jesus washed the feet of His disciples in an extraordinary display of humility. He then commanded them to do the same for each other.

Christ’s “mandate” is commemorated on Maundy Thursday—“maundy” being a shortened form of mandatum (Latin), which means “command.”

At 5:30 p.m., we will share a pot luck dinner in the Parish Hall.

At 7 p.m., there will be an instructional eucharist and the stripping of the altar in the church.
