Maundy Thursday at St Mark's
Thursday, April 13
The Last Supper was, as its name suggests, a "supper"-a full meal in which the Passover was celebrated. For our Maundy Thursday observance we will celebrate the Eucharist in the context of a full meal, in a format of worship that is called "dinner+church." 
Most of the meal will be provided (Main course, crudité, iced tea, bread, hummus, chicken fingers, etc.) Please  sign up to let us know how many to prepare for. And, if you are able, you may also   sign up   
to bring a salad or bottle of wine to share.
