Maundy Thursday Service of Remembrance and Tenebrae
7:30 p.m., Sanctuary
Music by the Chancel Choir and River Road Camerata
Maundy Thursday (“Holy Thursday”) is the Thursday of Passion Week. Two important events are the focus of Maundy Thursday. First, River Road Church observes a special Communion service on Maundy Thursday in memory of Jesus’ Last Supper with His disciples. Second, Jesus’ self-giving act for our salvation is observed through Tenebrae, a distinctive ceremony where the gradual extinguishing of the candles in the Sanctuary occurs while the story of Jesus’ trial and crucifixion is read.
