What is a Tenebrae Service?

Tenebrae is an ancient prayer celebrated during Holy Week which includes a series of psalms and the extinguishing of candles so as to bring the evening into the darkness of Holy Week and the Passion of the Lord.  It was originally prayed in monasteries as Matins and Lauds before the Triduum.  

We use an abbreviated version on Tuesday of Holy Week as a means of setting the tone for the coming days of the holiest week of the year.  Consider joining us for this very moving prayer.
