Maundy Thursday

Please join us for Maundy Thursday services at 3:45 pm or 7:00 pm.

What is Maundy Thursday?
The name comes from the Latin word “mandatum,” meaning “commandment.” It refers to the two “new” commandments our Lord gave to his disciples on this day. The first is “Love one another,” and the second is “Do this in remembrance of me.” In the early church, Maundy Thursday was also the day on which those who had fallen away from the Church were restored to full fellowship with other believers after having observed the 40-day penitential season of Lent. We are reminded of the reconciliation we have because of Christ's body and blood given for the forgiveness of sins, and the example of self-giving love shown by our Lord as he washed the feet of his disciples.
