Mass of the Lord’s Supper

Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday

During this Mass we recall the Institution of the Eucharist and Priestly Orders. 

After the Homily, delivered by Fr Andrew Allman, Archbishop Bernard Longley washed the feet of seminarians from St Mary’s College, Oscott and congregants in imitation of and representing Christ.

The Washing of the Feet reminds us all that we should imitate the Lord who came among us in love to serve and not be served. 

Following Mass, Exposition of The Blessed Sacrament took place in the Lady Chapel for silent prayer and contemplation – watching with Christ on the night before his Crucifixion. 

Concluding with Night Prayer of the Church (Compline).
