When Is Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday is also known as the Holy Thursday and marks the beginning of the three day celebrations of Easter. It is celebrated to remember the significance of the last supper of Jesus with his Apostles, the crucifixion and the death of Jesus, and the Resurrection.

Background Of Maundy Thursday

In Christian denominations, Maundy Thursday commemorates the mass supper of Jesus with his disciples in which he shared the Passover meal on the night before his crucification. It is a sad occasion as contrasted to the joyful Easter with Christians celebrating their resurrected Savior.
