Maundy Thursday History
Maundy Thursday commemorates the Last Supper of Jesus Christ with his disciples. On this day, Jesus began the tradition of Communion and humility and service as her washed his disciples’ feet. These services are still performed and received in churches today. During Mass, Catholics believe that bread is the body of Christ and wine the blood since Jesus’ himself broke bread and filled a cup of wine while uttering those words.
Maundy Thursday is celebrated on the Thursday before Easter, which always falls between 19 March and 22 April. Along with Good Friday and Easter, it is one of several days held over Holy Week.
