Holy Thursday in Ss. Peter & Paul’s Parish

Holy Thursday

The Church will be open today from 10.30am to 6pm for private prayer (For those living within 2 Km of the church) Please practice social distancing if visiting the church.

Mass of the Lords Supper 8pm

At the heart of Holy Thursday is Jesus’ command to serve others, modelled by Jesus in the washing of feet and the gift of himself in the Eucharist. ‘Do this in memory’ is a call to us as members of the Christian community to be a Eucharistic people. This means not only receiving the precious gift of Christ in the Eucharist but living Eucharist in our daily actions of care and service to one another.
Scripture tells us
‘Do you understand’ he said ‘what I have done to you? You call me Master and Lord, and rightly; so I am. If I, then, the Lord and Master, have washed your feet, you should wash each other’s feet. I have given you an example so that you may copy what I have done to you.’
(John 13:12-15)

An hour with Jesus, Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament 9pm – 10pm

I invite you to Light a candle as we join together spiritually in the presence of Jesus.

 The prayer below might be helpful in focusing your thoughts.

A prayer as we gather.
As we light this candle we take a moment to remember and pray for all those many people who are living the example of Jesus in these very days.

We pray for our needs and the needs of the world this day.

We remember in our prayer… (Bring your intentions to God) Lord, in your mercy. Hear my prayer.

Our Father …

Concluding Prayer
God of mercy and compassion, may we be sustained by your abiding presence with us as we continue our journey through Holy Week. May the example of your son call us to the service of others, knowing that we have the strength to do your willthrough the gift and nourishment of your Eucharist. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
