Then we settle in for a dramatic reading of The Passion of Jesus the Christ with Timpani. This version of The Passion is prepared by a Jewish/Christian Group. We conclude with Holy Communion Rite ll. Maundy Thursday April 18th 6-8:00pm Maundy comes from a Latin word meaning commandment. On this day Jesus said to his friends “A new commandment I give you.—Love one another as I have loved you.” He shared bread and wine with his friends and said, “Whenever you gather again, do this in remembrance of me. On Maundy Thursday we hold a taste of a Seder Supper showing the connection to our communion, with foot washing and the giving of The New Commandment.”Love God and Love your Neighbor. 9:00pm You are invited to pray silently in the church while the altar is stripped.
