Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday (April 13 this year) commemorates an event described in all four Gospel accounts, the Last Supper of Jesus with his followers before he was arrested and killed.  The word is a modified version of the word “mandate” (commandment) because, according to the Gospel of John Chapter 13, Jesus said that he was giving his followers a new commandment, “Love one another as I have loved you.”  Given that Jesus was about to die for his followers (and for all of us), that was truly a challenge.   Christians have tried to live up to this challenge  ever since.  Our liturgy starts at 6:30 pm and is followed by an agape feast together.  You are welcome to join us.
