“The Last Supper” presented Thursday, April 17

    On Maundy Thursday (April 17) we look forward to a special dramatization of the Last Supper featuring a dozen of our own members and directed by Richard Gladon.

    The production uses Leonardo DaVinci’s famous “Last Supper” depiction as a live freeze-frame opportunity to introduce the audience to the experiences and possible thoughts of the famed twelve disciples as they shared the last supper with Jesus on the night in which he was betrayed.  The sharing of Holy Communion is a part of this special service.
