Maundy Thursday

April 9--5-6 pm

Handwashing and Comfort Feast.
Bring your favorite Comfort Food

Maundy Thursday ritual: Handwashing and Comfort Feast.

The Comfort Feast is a reminder that Jesus invited folks to his table all throughout his ministry, not only at the Last Supper.
He encouraged a deep connection and love beyond social norms. He brought people together to share intimate meals who would never normally even have a conversation. But here they were, eating together at the same table... saying , could you pass the bread? He knew that people need connection and inclusion.

Jesus is saying to us, You have a place at the table, no matter who you are. Jesus is challenging us to do the same, welcome people into our hearts and into our homes and into our churches. Even if we can't physically be together right now.

Good Friday

On Good Friday, Catholics/Christians remember Jesus' journey to death.

Please join the L.A. Catholic Worker for its annual Via Crucis this Friday, April 10 at 3 PM, live streamed on Facebook. 
"Stations of the Carceral Cross" will explore Jesus' passion in parallel with the history of incarceration in Los Angeles.

Rabbi Diane writes:

No, Passover won't be the same... We might not have all of the right items on our seder plates...We might not have all of the ingredients for our favorite dishes... We might not be able to be around the same table...But we are family!
