PREPARE + PARTICIPATE

On Maundy Thursday, we remember the final night of Jesus’ life when he washed his disciples’ feet, instituted the Last Supper, and told them, “A new commandment I give to you that you love one another.”

What you need

  • A container, bin, or bucket that you can fill with water and is large enough for your feet.
  • Towel(s)
  • Candles
  • A home liturgy foot washing guide

What to do

  • During the service or later, take turns following Jesus’ example and washing each others’ feet.
  • Cover your cross with dark fabric
  • Light candles at the start of the evening that are then extinguished or taken on a prayer walk afterward

Idea: Candlelight Prayer Walk
Following the service, take your candles and embark on a silent evening processional prayer walk around your neighborhood.
