Maundy Thursday Holy Eucharist at Trinity Cranford – Thur. April 18th – 7:30 PM

On Thursday April 18, 2019 at 7:30 PM Trinity Episcopal Church,119 Forest Avenue, Cranford, New Jersey will have a Maundy Thursday Holy Eucharist. The word “Maundy” comes from the Latin mandatum which means “command.”  Beginning with Jesus’ command to serve each other, the evening will begin with the ritual of hand washing, showing us the true meaning of servant hood.  Then the serviced will focus on the institution of the Eucharist within the context of the Last Supper Jesus celebrated with his disciples and we will witness the stripping of the altar and exit in silence. Those who wish to may keep the vigil through the night as the disciples did with Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane.  “Maundy Thursday is the first of the three great services of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Paschal Vigil on Saturday, which together are collectively known as the Triduum and encapsulate the heart of the Christian faith,” said The Reverend Andy Kruger, Trinity’s Priest-in-Charge. All are welcome to attend!
