THE TENEBRAE SERVICE
April 17th at 7 PM
...from the latin word for shadow, Tenebrae is a service of devotion in which we recognize the shadows which darkened the life of Christ during the week leading up to His crucifixion. In the service, seven candles are gradually extinguished, symbolizing the flight and denial of Jesus' disciples and friends as the arrest and crucifixion unfolded. An eighth candle, representing Christ, remains lit throughout the service and is removed at the end to signify the deep darkness of Christ's death, burial and the closing of the tomb. On Easter morning, the Christ candle will be returned to the sanctuary as an emblem of His resurrection.
