Tenebrae


April 14th

7:30PM – nave

An adaptation of matins and lauds for Holy Week, in which candles are extinguished one by one as the appointed psalms are read, and a loud noise is made at the end of the service symbolizing the earthquake at the time of Christ’s death.

Maundy Thursday

April 14th
7:30PM (Holy Eucharist, with Procession to the Altar of Repose) – nave

We remember Jesus’ last meal with his friends, and his bold commandment to love one another as he loves us. All are welcome to come forward to have their feet washed and to offer the same care for another. It is the first day of what is called the Holy Triduum, which is the three days preceding a major feast day, in this case Easter Sunday.

Good Friday

April 15th
12:00PM (The Three Hours)

7:30PM (Liturgy of the Day, with Veneration of the Cross) – nave

Many Christians around the world observe Good Friday on the Friday before Easter Sunday. It commemorates Jesus Christ’s Passion, crucifixion, and death.

The name Good Friday is entirely appropriate because the suffering and death of Jesus, as terrible as it was, marked the dramatic culmination of God’s plan to save his people from their sins.
