 Good Friday Tenebrae Service

Led by our Ministers, Music Director and our Choir, this service is a night of stark beauty in the darkness.   

Tenebrae is Latin for shadows and tells the story of the increasing isolation of Jesus and of all those who suffer. Tenebrae is a service of mourning, of remembering the loss, grief and suffering of this old world. Though in our worship we often counter the litany of suffering with stories of love and joy, Tenebrae is a time to be with your broken heart, be in community, be a part of all that is.  Held on Good Friday, this service will touch upon Tenebrae and Good Friday themes.
Join us for a candle-lit night of readings, music and the rare opportunity to use our church’s Communion Silver, borrowed back from the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Communion – always optional – will be shared.
