Celebrating the Lord's Supper on Maundy Thursday

Recalling the last supper of Jesus with his disciples, when he instituted the sacrament of Holy Communion, we meet by candlelight in the evening of Maundy Thursday to share a simple meal of bread and soup at tables along the length of this ancient church. Readings and prayers culminate in an act of communion by passing bread and wine from one to another along the table.
