HOLY THURSDAY -April 13 2017
 
In the Christian calendar, Maundy Thursday, also known as Holy Thursday, is the Thursday before Easter, the day on which the Last Supper is said to have occurred.
 
Holy Thursday commemorates the Last Supper, which was held the evening before the Crucifixion. Friday in Holy Week(Good Friday) is the anniversary of the day that Christ was crucified and died on the cross Holy week and the Lenten season end with Easter Sunday, the day of resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Last Supper
 
The word "maundy" originates from the command given by Christ at the Last Supper, that we should love one another. Christians remember 'Maundy Thrusday" as the day of the last supper, and when Jesus washed the feet of all his disciples thereby establishing a ceremony known as the Eucharist. Jesus was betrayed by Judas in the Garden of Gethsemane on the night of "Maundy Thursday '.

To commemorate this occasion, Roman Catholic church services conducts a ceremony in which the priest washes the feet of 12 people.

 
Maundy Thursday Falls on 13th 2006. Some other churches nowadays also have foot-washing ceremonies as part of their Maundy Thursday services.

The Last Supper was a Pesach (Passover) Seder meal and Jesus gave a new meaning to two of the special foods used in the celebration: bread and wine. He told his disciples to eat and drink them as his body and blood. Jesus was referring to his crucifixion the next day when his body would be broken and his blood spilled.
 
Last Supper
 
Today most Christians celebrate this with a service in church called Holy Communion. Through receiving the bread and wine they commune (come into union) with Jesus. This union links them with God and their fellow Christians both now and in the past.
 
Different churches celebrate Holy Communion in different ways - some use unleavened bread as Jesus did at the Last Supper, whilst others like to use our everyday bread; some drink from individual glasses, others from a large cup called a chalice.

Most Protestant Christians see the bread and wine as important symbolic reminders of Jesus, whereas Roman Catholic Christians talk about the bread and wine becoming his body and blood.

In Roman Catholic churches the bread and wine are called the 'Blessed Sacrament' and kept in a Tabernacle (cupboard) with a light burning in front of it.

Some churches celebrate Holy Communion every day, some every Sunday, and others once a month or less often. Other Christian groups such as the Salvation Army and the Quakers do not have the ceremony at all.
