Maundy Thursday Solemn Eucharist

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.

Palm Sunday Procession & Eucharist

Blessing of Palms, Singing of the Passion and Eucharist for Palm Sunday sung by the Great Choir

Today we remember how crowds of people waving palm branches welcomed Jesus as king as he rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, only days before he was arrested. Palm crosses will be distributed at all the services today.

The service begins near the Royal Garrison Church. Bring a branch or some greenery from home to wave as we process to the Cathedral where the service continues. The Choir sings the Passion, the account of Jesus’ arrest, trial and death. This year the Passion setting is by John Sanders from the Gospel according to Saint Mark, and the Communion setting is David Price’s Missa Orbis factor (for Choir, Organ and Strings).
