Maundy Thursday at Christ Church begins with a 5:00 p.m. Seder meal in New Brick, and is then followed by a 7:30 p.m. Eucharist, when we will gather to bring into remembrance the Last Supper of our Lord and the Institution of the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. We hear and remember the words of Jesus as he states, “Do this in remembrance of me.” As the service concludes, the altar is stripped of all of its apportionments, so that the focus of all can be upon the cross alone on Good Friday. Then we hear of the Agony in the Garden as Jesus is arrested. The Watch that takes place through the night, as in response to our Lord’s question- “Could you not watch with me one hour?”
The congregation is then invited to come and spend an hour (or any portion) in prayer and solitude at the Altar of Repose, which is set up in Old Brick.
We do hope that you'll join us.
