Holy Thursday, or sometimes known as Maundy Thursday, is the first of the three days of solemn remembrance of the events leading up to and immediately following the crucifixion of Jesus. The English word “Maundy” comes from the Latin mandatum, which means “commandment.” As recorded in John’s gospel, on his last night before his betrayal and arrest, Jesus washed the feet of his disciples and then gave them a new commandment to love one another as he had loved them (John 13:34). This is why services on this night generally include the washing of feet or other acts of physical care as an integral part of the celebration.
We honor our tradition with our Holy Thursday service complete with a feast of drink, cheese, grain, dried fruit, and other foods meant to be served and shared by all. We also have a foot washing station where you are invited to participate in the practice of washing and serving others.
Please join us.
