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.

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.
