Religious Observances

Maundy Thursday is the traditional name for the Thursday preceding Easter. It remembers the Last Supper of Jesus with his disciples, his washing their feet, and the betrayal of Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane. The Episcopal Church observes this holy day with a service that features “rememorative” actions for worshippers to participate in the sacred narrative.
