Thu, March 28 at 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm PDT

Join us for the Holy Eucharist (Holy Communion) service on Maundy Thursday, March 28, 2024. It commemorates Jesus telling us to love one another and the institution of the Eucharist. Services are at 12:00 noon and 7:00 pm. Both services have the washing of feet, which Jesus explicitly commands in John 13:1-17.

In addition to the Eucharist, the 7:00 pm service includes the stripping of the altar in preparation for Good Friday. This is followed by a Vigil before the altar of repose, which ends at 10:30 pm.

All are welcome at Redeemer

  • All races.
  • All religions.

If you want to participate in the foot washing, be sure to wear clothing that makes this easy. No one must participate. No pressure is given to participate.

Join us to remember the night in which Jesus was betrayed.

Washing of feet on Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday is the Thursday in Holy Week. It is part of the Triduum, or three holy days before Easter. It comes from the Latin mandatum novum, “new commandment,” from John 13:34. The ceremony of washing feet was also referred to as “the Maundy.”

Celebrations also commemorate the institution of the Eucharist by Jesus “on the night he was betrayed.” Egeria, a fourth-century pilgrim to Jerusalem, describes elaborate celebrations and observances in that city on Maundy Thursday. Special celebration of the institution of the Eucharist on this day is attested by the Council of Hippo in 381.

The Prayer Book liturgy for Maundy Thursday provides for celebration of the Eucharist and a ceremony of the washing of feet which follows the gospel and homily. There is also provision for the consecration of the bread and wine for administering Holy Communion from the reserved sacrament on Good Friday. Following this, the altar is stripped and all decorative furnishings are removed from the church

The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer: Worshiping God, living in community, reaching out to the world.

Church of the Redeemer

Church of the Redeemer: Worshiping God, living in community, and reaching out to the world around us. We are an Episcopal Church serving north King County and south Snohomish County, Washington. As you travel your road, go with friends walking the way of Jesus at Redeemer.

Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 Northeast 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. The campus is a short distance north of Bothell Way, near the Burke-Gilman Trail. The entrance looks like a gravel driveway. The campus is larger on the inside than it is on the outside. And we managed to hide a large building on the side of a hill that is not easily seen from the street.

The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
