This year we will be having both a Maundy Thursday and a Good Friday service. We appropriately call it Maundy Thursday service because we include footwashing as part of the service. We recall the new commandment (mandatum novum in Latin) to love one another that Christ gave us in John 13:34. Anyone may choose to participate in the footwashing or one may choose to simply observe. Coming without socks or hose may ease your participation in the service. The service will also include the Lord’s Supper and the stripping of the church. With the church bare everyone is invited to come on Good Friday for a Service of Tenebrae, which is an extended meditation of the passion of Christ. Please enter the chapel in silence on Good Friday and we will all exit the church in silence at the conclusion of the service. Be in prayer for our church until we meet again on Easter Sunday morning to celebrate the Resurrection.
