APRIL 18: GREAT AND HOLY THURSDAY

Last-Supper-Icon-e1349984540215 MATINS – CANCELLED, VESPERAL DIVINE LITURGY OF ST. BASIL –  6:00 PM.

On this day we hear the Gospels of Matthew, John and Luke. We recall our Lord’s last meal (the Mystical Supper) with His disciples – a Passover meal, which inaugurates the mystery of the Eucharist, the washing of the feet of the disciples by Jesus Christ, the prayer of Jesus Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane, His agony, and His betrayal by Judas, and His arrest.
