Come join the Fellowship of St. Alban for Tenebrae (from the Latin for "darkness"), a special candlelight service that combines some of the psalms and readings for Holy Week. As the candles are progressively extinguished, until only one remains -- briefly hidden to represent Jesus's burial -- and a loud noise is made to show the anguish of Creation. The candle is then returned into the church to show the victory of Christ, the King of Love, over the powers of Evil and Death.
