Maundy Thursday Communion
Apr 18 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

“Maundy” comes from the Latin for “commandment” (like “mandate”). At the Last Supper (on the night before his crucifixion on Good Friday) Jesus told his followers to love each other, and seek to serve rather than to rule. He demonstrated this by washing his followers’ feet. At this service we will commemorate this when the Vicar will wash the feet of some members of the congregation. We will then do the other thing that Jesus did at the Last Supper by taking and sharing bread and wine as his body and blood as a reminder of him. Please join us for this solemn celebration.
