Apr 13 – Maundy Thursday and the Stripping of the Altar

From the Latin word, mandatum, the Maunday Thursday service commemorates the “new commandment” Jesus gave his disciples, which was to love one another.  The occasion for this was the last supper, at which the Holy Eucharist was instituted.   This Eucharist begins at 7 p.m. concluding with the moving liturgy of the stripping of the altar.
