Join us as we begin with a simple meal together, as Jesus and His disciples did on that Thursday all those years ago.

 

After, we move to the for the washing of the feet (entirely optional!) before we celebrate the Eucharist.

After all have received, the High Altar is stripped and the nave altar is transformed into the altar of repose - our own Garden of Gethsemane. As Christ commanded, 'keep watch' in a prayer vigil until Midnight (feel free to stay for as little or as long as you like, or to come and go at any point).

Join us for this powerful start to the Triduum  - the three days of prayer and reflection leading up to Easter Day.
