During this "Proper Liturgy for Maundy Thursday," from The Book of Common Prayer, we offer optional foot-washing (John 13:1-17) as we commemorate Jesus' institution of the Lord's Supper/Holy Communion. At the end of the service, we ceremonially strip the worship space of all decoration as we enter into Our Lord's betrayal and death.
This is the first day of the Triduum, the holy days preceding Easter Day. In these three days, we commemorate an aspect of the end of Our Lord's incarnate life among us.
Following the service members of the congregation may participate in a part of the all-night Gethsemane Watch or Vigil of Repose.
