Agapé Feast and Maundy Thursday Service
April 18 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
5:30 p.m. Agapé Feast in Parish Hall | Nursery Provided
A family-friendly, celebratory, shared meal of breads, cheeses, fruits, and other simple Mediterranean-style foods and beverages ($5 children, $10 adults, $25 max family).
6:30 p.m. Eucharist and Foot Washing (Mandatum) Nursery Provided
The word “maundy” comes from the Latin mandatum which means “commandment.” We come to church this night as if to join Jesus in the Upper Room. On this night, we reenact Jesus’ demonstration of what it means to be a servant through the care of serving one another in the washing of feet. At the conclusion of this service, the altar is stripped and a holy vigil is begun. The church is left bare and darkened and the congregation leaves in silence.
