Maundy Thursday Shoe Shine

Maundy Thursday Shoe Shine

The Cathedral Clergy shined the shoes of shoppers in Manchester Arndale on Maundy Thursday. The shoe shine idea has a serious message aiming to emulate Jesus washing the feet of his followers 2000 years ago and the subsequent tradition of the clergy washing parishioners feet on the Thursday before Easter for centuries.

Thank you to Manchester Arndale and everyone who took part.
