Mass of the Lord’s Supper 2014

Here are some pictures of the Mass of the Lord’s Supper celebrated last night (Maundy Thursday) at the Priory of the Holy Spirit, Oxford. The washing of the feet (Mandatum) occurred as usual, though it is not shown below.

The empty tabernacle and the high altar

The ministers, and the vessels for Communion
The Deacon begins to prepare the altar
The choir sang Ubi caritas by Duruflé and Ave Verum by Byrd
The altar of repose, where the brethren and others watched till midnight
