Bishop John Barres was the main celebrant of the 8 p.m. Mass on Holy Thursday at St. Agnes Cathedral, Rockville Centre. This Mass commemorates the Last Supper, during which Christ instituted the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist, the sacrament of Holy Orders and gave us His commandment to love one another. After the homily preached by Father James Hanson, Bishop Barres washed the feet of parishioners following the example of Christ, who washed the feet of the apostles during the Last Supper.  After Mass ended, the Blessed Sacrament was taken from the tabernacle and carried in a candle-light procession to the altar of repose in the parish center.
