Tenebrae (In-Person and Livestream)

April 5, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

This is a form of the ancient cycle of office prayers that has been adapted for congregational use. This service is centered around psalms, readings and responsories. A set of 15 candles, placed in a triangular holder are featured prominently with one being extinguished after each Psalm. Tenebrae, Latin for “darkness,” is prayed as the candles in the cathedral are extinguished one by one. The center candle represents Christ, which, toward the end of the service, is taken away and hidden, afterward, a loud noise echoes, symbolizing the earthquake that happened at the moment of death. The Christ candle is then returned and the congregation leaves in silence. Sung by the Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys.

When the online version of the service leaflet becomes available, you can view it here.

 

 

Event Details

The entrance to the cathedral is at the top of the Great Steps. The accessible entrance is via the glass doors on Taylor Street or from the cathedral garage. Masks are strongly encouraged inside the cathedral.
