THE EVENING MASS OF THE LORD'S SUPPER, HOLY THURSDAY, 2011!

A packed Church last night for Holy Thursday. We washed the feet of 12 men. We also received the Oil of the Sick, the Oil of Cathecumens and the Sacred Chrism as a part of the Offertory Procession. Then after Holy Communion we had the Eucharistic Procession to the Altar of Repose. It was a glorious way to begin the Easter Triduum. Many thanks to Dr. Buck Melton for taking this great photos!

And the distribution of Holy Communion via Intinction for those who wished it (of which the vast majority so chose)!!

Holy Thursday always rips my heart out when they strip the Altar and take the Blessed Sacrament away, but the joy of Communion in this manner made it just a little easier to take this year.
