The Meal in the Upper Room is a profound recollection of the Passover meal (with a Christian understanding of its consequences), which takes place in silence, with food consisting of pita bread, lamb stew, fruits, nuts, a symbolic glass of wine and Scripture passages being read by participants. Meal in the Upper Room is a spiritual preparation for the events of the Holy Week, which captures the essence of our faith. Sitting is strictly allocated, so there is no reserve sitting, as names of those attending are displayed on the tables. Maintaining of silence and respect for the nature of the meal are essential.
