This service will have the full choir and include the celebration of the Eucharist, the stripping of the altar, and a silent procession into our courtyard for a time of silent prayer and reflection.

There is heaviness in the air as Jesus gathers his closest friends with the knowledge this Passover meal will be the last meal they will share together on this side of the grave.

We also remember that on this night Jesus washed his friends feet and to illustrate his new commandment that we love one another the way that he had loved them.

Then we break bread together we acknowledge Christ's impending death by stripping the altar.

Finally, we silently depart with the reserve sacrament into the courtyard, our Garden of Gethsemane, to pray and "stay awake" in solidarity with Christ.
