Maundy Thursday

Thursday, April 01, 2021

Below you can see some pictures from Maundy Thursday at Blackfriars.

Our day began with Tenebrae, the traditional celebration of the Liturgy of the Hours during the Triduum which includes Matins and Lauds and a number of beautiful Latin chants. You can watch it here.

The day was punctuated by various preparations for the Triduum.

The magnolia in the garden is now in full bloom.

In the evening, we celebrated the Mass of the Lord's Supper. You can watch this here. The Mass was followed by the usual watch at the Altar of Repose until midnight.
