The Collect for Maundy Thursday 

Almighty Father, whose dear Son, on the night before he suffered, instituted the Sacrament of his Body and Blood: Mercifully grant that we may receive it thankfully in remembrance of Jesus Christ our Lord, who in these holy mysteries gives us a pledge of eternal life; and who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Maundy Thursday Gospel Reflection with Deacon Leslie

Where will taking off our shoes lead us in this time of isolation? A reflection on the washing of the feet by Deacon Leslie

Maundy Thursday Meal Reflection 

Watch this reflection with Mother Emily as you eat your dinner on Maundy Thursday, to share a meal with Jesus.

Two parishioners have shared reflections on the stories of Maundy Thursday. Read Lenny Shepherd’s reflections on the experience of washing one another’s feet, and Jeanette Peterson’s reflections on the end of the meal, as the disciples sang a hymn and went out to the Mount of Olives.
