Wednesday in Holy Week: Tenebrae

Wednesday in Holy Week
7 PM Service of Tenebrae

"Tenebrae" is from the Latin for "shadows," and is the name of this traditional service of readings and prayers. As the service proceeds, candles are extinguished until the church is in darkness, remembering the disciples' desertion of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane and also foreshadowing the darkness of the clouds at the Crucifixion. Tenebrae at Holy Trinity is a simply and spare service, the only music being a final chanting of a psalm.
