Maundy Thursday Seder 2005

The 2005 Maundy Thursday Seder was led by Summerlea's Rev. Howard Clark and celebrants Jane Percy and Undeg Edwards. The ceremony preceding the supper included lighting the candles, discussion of the Seder symbols, symbolic washing of hands, the retelling of the Passover story and consumption of the prerequisite cups of "wine".

The supper consisted of lots of delicious pot-luck provided by the participants, followed by equally generous portions of dessert and tea or coffee.

Following the supper the assemblage moved to the sanctuary with Darryl leading the mournful "My Lord, why hast thou forsaken me?", then divested the chancel of all ornamentation, in memory of the Cross, to be re-installed Easter Sunday in memory of the Resurrection.

Following are a few group photos of the participants. The photos are pickable to see a larger version. To return here, pick Back on your browser.

Leading the charge to the buffet table are Jacob and John Osborne,
followed closely by Keith McKenzie and Peter Maklan,
with Peter's mom Leslie McEwen not far behind.

The attack on the buffet table continues,
while Keith and Peter enjoy their well-earned spoils.

And then we ate, "in proportion to the number of people
and the amount that each person can eat".
(Exodus 12: 4)
