Loaves and Fishes Meal, Holy Eucharist and Stripping of the Altar 6:30 p.m.

We start  at 6:30 pm in the undercroft with a simple meal of fish, coleslaw, rolls, and a beverage.  After the meal, we take part in a short Eucharistic service at our tables, during which we offer one another the bread and the wine.  The conclusion of the service takes place in the nave of the church, where we strip the altar, drape the cross, and place a bundle of thorns on the altar.
