Church to present ‘The Last Living Supper’


Members of Peace Lutheran Church will offer a special rendition of Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘Last Supper’ on Maundy Thursday, March 29. Each character will ‘come to life’ as he ponders the question: ‘Is it I that will betray my Lord?’


Peace Lutheran Church, 737 Barracks-view Road, will celebrate Maundy Thurs-day on March 29 with a presentation of “The Last Living Supper.”

This chancel drama depicts Leonardo da Vinci’s famous 1495-1498 painting that shows Jesus partaking of the Passover meal with his 12 disciples just before his arrest and crucifixion.

During the meal, Jesus told them: “One of you will betray me.”

The painting shows the startled expression of the disciples, as each wondered if Jesus meant him. In this presentation, Peace members will recreate the poses of the disciples in da Vinci’s masterpiece.

One by one, each character will “come to life” to share his thoughts and to wonder: “Is it I?”

The church’s Chancel Choir adds to the drama with various musical selections, and the service will culminate with Holy Communion.

The service will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 29. For additional information, call (314) 892-5610.
