      EVENT DETAILS
      Good Friday Service

      There are 2 Good Friday services at St. John's; one is at noon and the other is a Tenebrae service at 8PM. The work "Tenebrae" is Latin for shadows. The Tenebrae service recreates the emotional aspects of the passion story. There are scripture readings, solemn hymns and the extinguishing of candles as the service progresses until the entire sanctuary is left in darkness with only the Christ candle remaining. At this point the service ends, but the Christ Candle continues to burn, pointing to the culmination of the Holy Week Passion Story-the Resurrection of Jesus on Easter.
      Services are on April 10, 12PM and 8PM.

      Cost: Free -
