MAUNDY THURSDAY, MARCH 29
8 am and 12:05 pm: Eucharist
5:30 pm: Evening Prayer
6 pm Choral Eucharist with Maundy Ceremonies in the Church
The word “maundy” comes from the Latin mandatum which means “commandment”—in reference to Jesus’ words to his disciples, “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another.” At 6 pm, we reenact Jesus’ demonstration of what it means to be a servant through the ritual of foot washing. At the conclusion of this service, the altar is stripped and the sacrament is reserved and taken to the chapel to be used on Good Friday. The service moves from light to darkness and silence.
7:15 pm “The Night Watch” in the Chapel until 8am on Good Friday.
Spend time in the Chapel in the presence of the reserved sacrament—in quiet, in prayer, in watchfulness. Sign up at the St. Bart’s Welcome Table.
