Join us at 6:00 pm for a light supper in the tradition of the early church every time they gathered. During the meal we will have readings and psalms, reminding us of the first Passover meal of the Israelites as they journeyed out of slavery in Egypt.  We will then reenact Jesus’ washing of his disciples’ feet and celebrate the   institution of holy Eucharist as he instructed “in remembrance of him”.  The service will conclude with the stripping of the altar after which we will leave the church in darkness and silence.  Once home you are invited to “watch and pray” as Jesus’ disciples were asked to do in the Garden of Gethsemane.
