Holy Thursday is the day that Catholics commemorate the three pillars of their faith: the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist, the priesthood, and the Mass. Father Tom Eichenberger presided at the Holy Thursday Mass of the Last Supper. This was the beginning of the Triduum celebration. The adult and children’s choirs provided a wonderful backdrop to this solemn Mass. The washing of the feet, symbolic of Jesus washing the feet of the apostles, is an important element of Holy Thursday. At the conclusion of the liturgy, the congregation processed to the lower church for prayer and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
