About the Event
Tenebrae, which means darkness or shadows, acquired its name because of the mourning ritual surrounding the ceremony. It consists of hymns and readings and includes a triangular stand with fifteen candles that are one by one extinguished until darkness totally cloaks the Church. But in the darkness is a powerful prayer, and with only one candle lit, the assembly disperses in solemn silence. It’s a ceremony at least 1,000 years old that seeps into your bones and leaves your entire being longing for Easter…longing for the Resurrection…longing for the victory of our Light.
