The Last Supper is what we call the last meal Jesus ate with His disciples before His betrayal and arrest. The Last Supper is recorded in the Synoptic Gospels Matthew 26:17–30

During that meal, Jesus told his followers his life would be given in their behalf. He gave his followers clear instructions for them to remember his ransom sacrifice. Luke 22:19, 20 says "Also, he took a loaf, gave thanks, broke it, and gave it to them, saying: ‘This means my body, which is to be given in your behalf. Keep doing this in remembrance of me. He did the same with the cup after they had the evening meal, saying: “This cup means the new covenant

by virtue of my blood, which is to be poured out in your behalf. So at that last supper he instituted a new arrangement for his disciples to follow. Each year thereafter they were to commemorate his death instead of the Passover. By means of his death, we have an opportunity for life everlasting.

This was categorized under 'The Last Supper', so I'm going to conclude that you were referring to that.

The proceeding day, Jesus was set to be crucified, and hence the celebration of Easter.
