Please join us for this Good Friday service, led by Kyle Webber and the Chancel Choir.
The Tenebrae Service has a rich tradition in the church, dating back to the 8th century. Through word and music, this service dramatizes the suffering, death and burial of Jesus Christ.
But what is "Tenebrae"???
The word "tenebrae" comes from the Latin meaning "darkness." The Tenebrae is an ancient Christian Good Friday service that makes use of gradually diminishing light through the extinguishing of candles to symbolize the events of that week from the triumphant Palm Sunday entry through Jesus' burial.
