News from Sing For Joy Maundy Thursday

maundythursdayAs part of Holy Week, Maundy Thursday recalls the gathering of Jesus with his disciples for the traditional Passover meal on the night before he was crucified. The word "Maundy" comes from the Latin mandatum which means commandment. The overarching theme of Maundy Thursday is Jesus' new commandment to "love one another as I have loved you." Jesus' love is demonstrated both in his example of servanthood by washing the feet of his disciples and in his gift of himself in the Holy Communion.

You are invited to join the St. Olaf Student Congregation via live and on-demand streaming for two services today: Daily Chapel with Washing of Feet at 11 a.m., and a Service of Holy Communion at 9 p.m.
