Service of Tenebrae

Based on the ancient night and early morning services of Maundy Thursday, this service recreates Jesus’ betrayal, abandonment and agony and it is left unfinished, because the story isn’t over until Easter Day.  The most conspicuous feature of the service is the gradual extinguishing of the fifteen candles called the Tenebrae Hearse until only the top candle, representing of Our Lord, is alight.
