Tenebrae Service, April 1

On Wednesday, April 1 at 6 p.m. join us for Tenebrae, one of the very special services of the liturgical year. The name Tenebrae, the Latin word for “darkness” or “shadows,” has for centuries been applied to the ancient monastic night and early morning services of the last three days of Holy Week, which in medieval times came to be celebrated on the preceding evenings. By drawing upon material from each of the former three offices of Tenebrae, this service provides a meditation upon, and a prelude to, the events in Jesus’ life between the Last Supper and the Resurrection.
