Maundy Thursday (In-person and Livestream)

Thursday, April 14 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

We recall the Last Supper and follow Jesus’ command to wash one another’s feet. The Eucharist is celebrated with fullness and then gives way to a vigil. 

Maundy Thursday is widely observed as the institution of the Holy Eucharist. The setting, however, is not the institution narrative, but the Gospel according to St. John. There, Jesus takes a towel and washes the feet of his disciples, instituting a servant ministry. On Maundy (from the Latin mandatum, or commandment) Thursday, we follow Jesus’ command and wash one another’s feet. Then, the Eucharist is celebrated with fullness until the organ falls silent and the consecrated Bread is placed on the Altar of Repose, after which we wait in vigil.  

The Rt. Rev. Dr. Marc Handley Andrus will preside and the Rev. Canon Jude Harmon will preach. 

The cathedral’s worship and formation teams have prepared a PDF of resources to guide your prayers and worship as you join our live stream services from home during Holy Week — read and download it here.
