Maundy Thursday and Altar Consecration
St. Dunstan's Episcopal Church in San Diego, CA - Our Maundy Thursday service was extra special as the Right Reverend James R. Mathes from the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego served as Celebrant and consecrated our new Altar. We remodeled our sanctuary in 2013, but due to an issue with the previous Altar (which we thought could be saved, but ended up being demolished), we have been using our small chapel's altar ever since...well, until last night! Here are some photos from the service.
