Last evening, two Lutheran Churches joined with the Catholic Church in town for a Seder meal held in the Catholic's social hall. About 100 people attended. Besides the built in reminders of the origin of the Passover, the group was reminded of the commonality of our faith in Christ, despite denominational differences. But those differences were also apparent before and after the meal. The Catholics had their Maundy Thursday Mass before the dinner. The Lutherans held their Maundy Thursday communion service after the meal, but in the semi-darkened Catholic sanctuary.
