Today is Maundy Thursday, the first day of the Easter Triduum, which also celebrates Jesus’ crucifixion on Good Friday and his resurrection celebrated at the Easter Vigil on the evening of Holy Saturday.
On Maundy Thursday, we remember how Jesus celebrated a special meal with his friends, The Passover, at which he broke the bread and shared it with the disciples. In the giving of the bread and wine, His body and blood, Jesus was giving His all for them.
We invite families to gather together and spend a few moments in prayer and reflection. Open the PowerPoint link (found below) and share the story of Maundy Thursday. A nice way to end your prayers it to say the final prayer together.
