Tenebrae Service

Time: 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Contact: Ken Weber · kweber@loyno.edu · 5048653167

Location: Holy Name of Jesus Church

While the liturgies of Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, and Good Friday offer many opportunities to contemplate the events of Christ’s suffering and death, Tenebrae focuses our attention on the inner drama of the Passion. Dating from the 7th or 8th Century, Tenebrae—from the Latin word for “shadows”—is a Holy Week prayer service steeped in tradition. Through psalms and readings gathered from the Liturgy of the Hours, Tenebrae enables us to meditate on the grief, abandonment, and betrayal Jesus experienced as the darkness of his impending death took hold.
