Maundy Thursday

Communion and Tenebrae Service 

Preacher: The Rev. Dr. Andrew H. Mann, Jr., D.Min.


April 6th, 2023                                             7:00 PM

Adagio in G Minor           Tomaso Albinoni


Leader:  And this is the judgment, that light came into the world, and we loved darkness rather than light. 

People:  God is light, in whom there is no darkness at all.

Leader:  For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.

People:  Everyone who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light.  But all who do what is true come to the light.

Leader:  Come; let us worship in spirit and truth.
