Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday
The derivation of the word Maundy has at least two possibilities for the origin.

1) Through Middle English and Old French mandé, from Latin mandatum, commandment;  

2) from the Latin mendicare, Old French mendier, and English maund, which means “to beg” (verb) or a “small basket” (noun) held out by maunders (beggars) as they maunded (begged). The service is a Eucharist, in remembrance that on this evening, the Lord instituted the holy communion, when He shared the last supper with his disciples.  

Several denominations have the tradition that the priest washes the feet of the people who attend the service; at St Mary’s, we do not keep this tradition

The tradition that we do keep is that the altar will be stripped (by members of the congregation) of all that reminds us of the joy in the Lord since the following day is Good Friday, the day when we remember and mourn the suffering and death of our Lord on the Cross, for our sins.

 

 

Good Friday
18 April
19.00

Good Friday
During the service, we read texts from the Bible; these text will be reflected on by listening to three aria’s (from the Messiah-Haendel; the Stabat Mater- Haydn; the Matthaeus Passion – Bach). These are sung by a soloist (Alisa Kasmir) accompanied by the organ (David van der Vlies); we will pray together and sing two hymns. With the prayers, we acknowledge our guilt and our sins and ask for forgiveness. We mourn and we repent.

You are invited and are most welcome to attend both services. They are a good and sober preparation for the joy of Easter
