April 10 | 7:00 pm | Sanctuary
The service of Tenebrae, meaning “darkness” or “shadows,” has been practiced by the church since medieval times. It is a prolonged meditation on Christ’s suffering where we will relive his Passion in scripture and music, led by our Chancel Choir. Gradually, seven candles will be extinguished, culminating with the Christ candle, to symbolize Jesus’ betrayal, arrest, crucifixion, and death. That candle will remain unlit until our service of Easter Vigil, when we begin our celebration of the resurrection.
