of Oil and water

April 6
4:30 pm

Cathedrals commonly hold a service on Maundy Thursday in which holy oils and holy water are blessed by the bishop. In this short service, brief liturgies are prayed to bless the Oil of the Sick, the Oil of Catechumens, and the Oil of Chrism, which are then used in churches throughout the year. This service does not include a sermon, worship music, or Eucharist. Location: All Saints Prayer Chapel.


At Home:

On Maundy Thursday, we remember the final night of Jesus’ life when he washed his disciples’ feet, instituted the Last Supper, and told them, “A new commandment I give to you that you love one another.”

What you need

  • A container, bin, or bucket that you can fill with water and is large enough for your feet.
  • Towel(s)
  • Candles
  • A home liturgy foot washing guide

What to do

  • During the service or later, take turns following Jesus’ example and washing each others’ feet.
  • Cover your cross with dark fabric
  • Light candles at the start of the evening that are then extinguished or taken on a prayer walk afterward

Idea: Candlelight Prayer Walk
Following the service, take your candles and embark on a silent evening processional prayer walk around your neighborhood.
