Maundy (when taken from the Latin mandatum)
means mandate or command.
It was during the last supper with his disciples that Jesus said, “A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; as I have loved you.” (John 13:34)
Tenebrae (Latin for “Darkness” or “Shadows”): is the gradual extinguishing of candles while a series of readings recited. In our service, each reading will be taken from the four Gospels.
*Reflection Stations 6:00 pm
You are invited to come any time during the hour prior to the Tenebrae service to participate in the reflection stations located around the Sanctuary. Use this time to leave the ordinary, busy life and enter sacred space with God.
