MAUNDY THURSDAY

Collect:

Almighty Father, whose dear Son, on the night before he suffered, did institute the Sacrament of his Body and Blood: Mercifully grant that we may thankfully receive the same in remembrance of him who in these holy mysteries giveth us a pledge of life eternal, the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord; who now liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit ever, one God, world without end. Amen.

After the Procession of the Blessed Sacrament to the Altar of Repose, a Watch is kept on Maundy Thursday. Click on photo to access more.
