Maundy Thursday is the Thursday in Holy Week. It is the first part of the Triduum, or three holy days before Easter. Worship services are at 12:00 noon and 7:00 pm on Thursday, April 6. All are welcome. Free.

The name “Maundy” comes from the Latin phrase mandatum novum, “new commandment,” from John 13:34. The ceremony of washing feet was also referred to as “the Maundy.” This also commemorates the institution of the Eucharist by Jesus “on the night he was betrayed.”

The 7:00 pm service will include the washing of feet (optional for everyone) and the stripping of the altar to prepare for Good Friday. This is followed by a Gethsemane Vigil for about an hour: Can you watch with me for one hour?
