Maundy Thursday is the day before Good Friday. It recalls the Last Supper - a Passover meal - that Jesus had with his friends before his betrayal and crucifixion. It's called Maundy because that word comes from the Latin Mandatum, which means Commandment. In John's story of the Last Supper, Jesus tell his disciples that he is giving them a new commandment - to love one another

The colours of Maundy Thursday are RED or WHITE

  • Matthew 26:17-30
  • Mark 14:12-25
  • Luke 22:7-34
  • John 13
