Maundy Thursday

EasterMaundy Thursday is the Thursday before Easter and commemorates the Maundy (foot washing) and Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles.

The service held on the evening of Maundy Thursday begins the Easter Triduum which signifies the passion, death and Resurrection of Christ over Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday.

The Maundy Thursday service is held in the evening as the Last Supper was held on the feast of Passover – according to Jewish tradition, Friday begins on Thursday night.

Today, we celebrate Maundy Thursday with a evening service of Worship and Communion.
