About the event

As Jesus shares in the Last Supper with the disciples in preparation for his ultimate sacrifice, we, too, celebrate our last Eucharist until Easter morning. The stripping of the altar is a ritual act of removing any and all accoutrements and embellishments from the altar and its surrounding space, leaving it a stark contrast to its normal splendid display. The somber tone of the act ushers us into Good Friday with a sense of emptiness and grief, anticipating the death of Jesus Christ.
