12 Disciples needed for Maundy Thursday Foot Washing - We encourage everyone to come forward to have their feet washed at the Maundy Thursday service, but would like to have twelve advance volunteers to represent Jesus' closest friends, whose feet he washed at the Last Supper. A sign-up sheet is on the round table in the narthex.
The Maundy Thursday Vigil at the Altar of Repose provides us with a chance to "spend one hour with [Jesus]" on the night before his death, as his first disciples could not. We encourage you to take this opportunity for silent prayer, meditation, Bible reading, and reflection on the passion, death and resurrection of our Lord. Please sign up in the narthex to let us know which your or hours you are willing to cover.
