This year, because of COVID we are not doing a Seder meal, however we have created a video that shows the progression, to help you create a Seder meal at home.
The Seder starts with readings, Lighting of the Festival Lights, Blessing of the Feast, wine/grape juice (no dairy items), a ceremonial plate for each person which has a green herb-parsley, matzo-unleavened bread, a bitter herb (moror)-horseradish, haroses (a mixture of apples, nuts, cinnamon and wine), boiled egg-sign of new life and birth which are all eaten at the time stated in the booklet while following along with the readings. We typically serve a meal of, relishes, chicken soup with matzo balls, roasted lamb, baked chicken, boiled potatoes with parsley, gravy, corn and a fresh/canned fruit cup for dessert. It ends with the Final Benediction and song.

This is a copy of the Welcome information from 2019:
The day of the Unleavened Bread arrived on which it was appointed to sacrifice the paschal lamb. Accordingly, Jesus sent Peter and John off with the instruction:
“Go and prepare our Passover supper for us. …”
When the hour arrived, He took His Place at the table and the apostles with him. He said to them:
“I have greatly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. I tell you, from now on I will not eat again until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.”
Then, taking bread and giving thanks, He broke it and gave it to them saying:
“THIS IS MY BODY TO BE GIVEN FOR YOU. DO THIS IN REMEMBRANCE OF ME.”
He did the same with the cup after eating, saying as he did so:
“THIS CUP IS THE NEW COVENANT IN MY BLOOD, WHICH WILL BE SHED FOR YOU.” (Luke 22:7, 17-20)
