Maundy Thursday worship
Thursday, April 18, 2019
Absolution (of the Ash Wednesday confession), foot washing, Holy Communion, proclamation of the Last Supper of our Lord.
“With nightfall our Lenten observance comes to an end, and we gather with Christians around the world to celebrate the Three Days of Jesus’ death and resurrection. At the heart of the Maundy Thursday liturgy is Jesus’ commandment to love one another. As Jesus washed the feet of his disciples, we are called to follow his example as we humbly care for one another, especially the poor and the unloved. At the Lord’s table we remember Jesus’ sacrifice of his life, even as we are called to offer ourselves in love for the life of the world.” (from Sundays and Seasons: Year C, 2019)
