Good Friday Tenebrae Service

The Tenebrae Service, from the Latin meaning "darkness," makes use of gradually diminishing light, scripture readings, and sacred music to symbolize the events of Jesus' last week on earth, from the triumphant Palm Sunday procession through Jesus' crucifixion and burial.  The service concludes in total darkness as the Christ candle is taken from the Sanctuary until Jesus' resurrection on Easter Sunday.
