Holy Thursday

We started the day with Morning Prayer at 9am.
It was a simple, quiet prayer with gentle music. 

The priests then headed off to Saint Agnes Cathedral for the Chrism Mass.
At this Mass they renewed their commitment to the priesthood and the holy oils are blessed.

 3pm Children's Service

 

Children heard the story of the Last Supper and Father Ralph spoke about easy and fun ways to love and difficult ways to love.  Jesus did both at the Last Supper.

7:30pm • Mass of the Lord's Supper

This was the main liturgy of Holy Thursday. We received the oils that were blessed earlier in the day,  recalled the Last Supper, did the ritual mandatum (washing of feet), celebrate the Eucharist and then walked in procession to the gym, with the Boy Scouts and Knights of Columbus as the honor guard.
