SEDER SUPPER — Sunday, April 14th

The Seder (“ordered”) Supper is the Passover meal that Jesus ate with his disciples the night before he died. 

For the Jewish people, the Seder Supper is held on the first night of Passover 

and is equivalent to our Christmas dinner; therefore children are welcome. 


The meal consists of various ritual foods, including unleavened bread, 

and the re-telling of the story of the Exodus from Egypt. 

It gives us insight into the celebration of the Eucharist. 

(On the night before he died, Jesus took bread from the table,

 blessed and broke it, and gave it to his disciples ….)


We will hold the Seder supper on Palm Sunday (April 14th

starting at 4 p.m. in Larose Hall.


It will conclude around 6:30 or 7 p.m. If you wish to participate, 

please call the Parish Office to pre-register. 

There is a limit of 36 participants. (minimum of 12). 

If you attended in the past, please come again. 


Participants are invited to bring a salad or cold cuts for the meal that concludes the Seder.

Note: All funds will be strictly distributed
