About The Event

Maundy is derived from the Latin ‘mandatum’ which means “commandment.” Maundy Thursday services commemorate the Last Supper, where Jesus said, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another as I have loved you.” (John 13:34).  This is the night of that New Commandment.

Maundy Thursday services traditionally include a focus on the institution of the Lord’s Supper, or Holy Eucharist. In many places, a foot washing service is included, symbolizing our duty to serve others as we learn to love one another. The service ends with the Stripping of the Altar of all ornamentation, leaving us the stark, heavy reminder of the trial of Jesus that is to follow.
