Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday, the Thursday in Holy Week or before Easter Day, so named from the "mandate" (recorded John xiii. 24) given by Jesus Christ before He washed His disciples' feet, which ceremony is still commemorated in the Latin Church. On this day also the royal bounty of Maundy money is distributed by the Lord High Almoner of British sovereigns in the Chapel Royal, Whitehall. The day is called Chare or Sltere and Ccena Bomini (" the Lord's Supper").
