Maundy is an old English word that is derived from the Latin mandatum meaning “mandate”. At this service, we will hear Jesus’ mandate from the Gospel of John: “A new commandment I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” In response to those sacred words, our clergy will offer foot washing to those who feel so moved. We will also commemorate the Last Supper by sharing in Holy Communion, which further binds us in love as a community. Rev. Samuel Powers will preach and music will be led by soloists and organ.
