In the early evening of Holy Thursday, 28 March 2024,  the Washing of the Feet (Vodnlova) service took place, commemorating the humility and service of our Lord Jesus Christ in washing the feet of His disciples. During this service, young boys portray the Apostles whilst His Eminence portrays Christ himself, taking off his outer robe and washing their feet as a sign of humility and servitude. During this time also, the butter is blessed and used for the anointing of feet. The faithful were given a portion of this butter to bring to their homes at the conclusion of the service.
