About The Event
Maundy is from the Latin maunde, mande, and mandatum, meaning “an order.” On the night before Jesus died He said to His disciples, “a new commandment I give to you, that you love one another” (John 13:34). We wash each other’s feet, as we may be willing, as a sign of our own call to serve one another in humility and love, as Jesus commanded. The Holy Sacrament is taken out of the church and placed “in repose” in the Chapel, until the next day. Traditionally, the parish keeps vigil, with volunteers who will spend an hour “with Jesus,” through the night, as He goes through His arrest and trial.
