Maundy Thursday and Tenebrae Service


Thursday, March 28 - 7:00 pm


The term “Maundy” is derived from the Latin Mandatum  meaning commandment.  It refers to the command to love one another contained in John 13:34.  This night also commemorates the institution of the Lord’s Supper. 


A Service of Tenebrae or “darkness/ shadows” is based on a twelfth-century late night service which functioned as the beginning of a prayer vigil lasting through Saturday.  This service is also a meditation on the passion of Christ.
