We made it to Holy Thursday mass. Nothing too exciting, although the Provincial for the Salesians made it in. For the Mandatum, they announced that they were not washing feet because of Ebola. Instead, they gave soap and towels to 12 men as a symbol of the washing of the feet. Interesting twist.
Good Friday was scheduled to begin “After the youth perform a passion play at 1:00.” Last year, it was after live Stations of the Cross, and it started at about 4:00. THis year, we showed up just before 3:00 and they had just finished reading the Passion. Gotta love West African scheduling
