Agape Supper

Agape Supper

As part of our Holy Week events leading up to Good Friday and Easter Sunday we come together to share in a simple meal that includes a celebration of Holy Communion which forms an integral part of the meal.

The term Agape or Love feast was used for certain religious meals among early Christians that seem to have been originally closely related to the Eucharist. In modern times the Lovefeast is used to refer to a Christian ritual meal distinct from the Eucharist.

References to such communal meals are discerned in 1 Corinthians 11:17–34, in Saint Ignatius of Antioch’s Letter to the Smyrnaeans, where the term “agape” is used, and in a letter from Pliny the Younger to Trajan, in which he reported that the Christians, after having met “on a stated day” in the early morning to “address a form of prayer to Christ, as to a divinity”, later in the day would “reassemble, to eat in common a harmless meal”
