Join us Wednesday evening, March 31, at 7:30pm for the Service of the Tenebrae

Tenebrae is an ancient Holy Week service of the church which was very popular before the Reformation. “Tenebrae” is Latin for “shadow” and the service centers on gradual extinguishing of seven candles signifying the progress of Holy Week towards Good Friday and the Crucifixion. We shall be doing a very shortened and modified version of the service centering an invitation to reflect on seven questions about your spiritual life as we extinguish the seven candles. The service ends with a “Strepitus” (Latin for a “loud noise”) and the reappearance of the seventh candle as the sign of the Easter resurrection.
