Maundy Thursday Solemn Eucharist

  • Portsmouth Cathedral (map)

Eucharist of the Last Supper (with incense) at 7.00pm sung by Cantate and the Cathedral Consort.

The service recalls how Jesus washed the feet of his disciples as a sign of loving service, shared bread and wine and instituted the Eucharist. After the service all decoration is stripped from the altars. Those who wish may stay on for a Watch of Prayer until midnight, as we remember how Jesus was arrested as he prayed in the garden of Gethsemane.
