Maundy Thursday Seder 2003

The 2003 Maundy Thursday Seder was led by Summerlea's Rev. Howard Clark and St. Andrew's Darryl Macdonald, assisted by Chris Maragoudakis. The ceremony preceding supper included lighting the candles, discussion of the Seder symbols, symbolic washing of hands (within constraints dictated by current SARS concerns), the retelling of the Passover story and consumption of the prerequisite cups of "wine".

The supper consisted of copious quantities of 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 to read responsively Psalm 22, then to divest the chancel of all ornamentation, in memory of the Cross. The ornaments to be re-installed Easter Sunday in memory of the Resurrection.

Following are a few photos of the participants. The shots were taken unposed during supper, so some candid-camera situations may be anticipated. Also, there are a lot of large photos, so they may take some time to download.
