Thursday takes us into the drama of the Last Meal of Jesus with his disciples and the stripping of the altar. This year we will try on a new way to celebrate this feast. The liturgy committee realized that the meal before the service was both poorly attended, and no one brought soup for dinner so there was no food. This year we will gather for an agape (love) meal in the parish hall, featuring Fr. Ron’ roasted lamb and veggies. We will also offer another option for those adverse to lamb. It is important that you sign up for the meal, so we know how much lamb and other items to purchase. We will look for some desserts and hors d’oeuvres from parishioners. This is another example of letting something die a natural death and coming up with a creative alternative. We will begin with a social time where we can wash each others hands as a sign of the foot washing of Jesus. We will go right into dinner where Holy Eucharist will be offered right at our tables. We then will process to the church for the stripping of the altar and end with the burning outside of the branch we used for our mobiles last year.
