Maundy Thursday service

7:30 PM – 8:30 PM

Maundy Thursday commemorates Jesus Christ's institution of the Eucharist during the Last Supper. The Prayer Book liturgy for Maundy Thursday provides for celebration of the eucharist and a ceremony of the washing of feet which follows the gospel and homily. Following this, the altar is stripped and all decorative furnishings are removed from the church.
