This service commemorates Jesus' final meal with his disciples. The word "maundy" is taken from the Latin word from which we receive the English word "mandate," and the word references the mandate that Jesus gave the disciples as he washed their feet after supper: “As I have loved you, so you must love one another." (John 13:34)
