  • Good Friday Word Service ~ 5:30pm
  • Tenebrae Service ~ 8:00pm
    Tenebrae, translating to “darkness” or “shadows”, is a form of prayer that is connected to the Divine Office daily prayers that are said throughout Triduum. Tenebrae services were originally held at midnight,as it was the darkest part of the day, though are now prayed either in the morning or evening when the sun is not in the sky. We will be praying the Good Friday Tenebrae together. As we pray and sing, candles will be extinguished leaving us in more and more darkness, ending in the strepitus or “great noise”, when we will bang on books and pews to symbolize the earthquake that took place at the time of Christ’s death. We will then depart from our time together, as much as possible maintaining silence and staying in a mindset of prayer.
