Holy Week 2023 – Seder Meal

Seder meal is primarily a re-enactment to better understand the Last Supper of Jesus and the roots of the Christian Eucharist. We cannot understand Jesus Christ, his mission, teachings and his life without understanding the significance of the Jewish people, their history and belief from the Old Testament. The Passover is an ancient Jewish festival which is still celebrated enthusiastically by Jewish people. When Christians re-enact the Passover Seder it is not a celebration of the rite but a reflection and a learning experience to deepen understanding. We will re-enact the Passover (Seder) meal at Trinity on April 6th, 2023. We will enjoy a full meal. Lamb will be served but other side dishes such as vegetable dishes, rice/potatoes, fruits, chocolate, red wine, red grape juice must be brought by those who wish to attend. We will also re-enact Jesus washing his disciple’s feet at the Last Supper. Please send an email to Manju Sara Jacob (manjusarajacob@gmail.com), stating your name and email address, how many in your family will attend, and what you would like to bring. A donation of 5 Euro per person will be collected to cover costs. Last day for registration is on Palm Sunday
