St. Anthony’s Annual Seder Celebration

St. Anthony’s annual Seder celebration is, perhaps, our most moving spiritual ritual of the year.  As an adaptation of the Jewish Passover, we, in effect, are re-celebrating Jesus’ Seder, his Last Supper, by combining it with our own Eucharist.  We celebrate the Eucharist as Jesus did with his disciples and friends. We bless the bread and wine as he did, and say the words he said. We are, in effect, linking the Hebrew Scriptures with our own Scriptures, the past with the present.

Through songs and readings, we re-tell the story of humanity’s journey out of slavery and into the freedom of our spiritual Holy Land.  A highlight of the ritual is a ceremonial washing of hands, in remembrance of Jesus’ washing his disciples’ feet.

Afterwards, we celebrate with a simple soup and salad dinner.
