Holy Week Tenebrae Service

April 5, 2023 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Holy Week Tenebrae Service Join the Office of Spiritual Life on April 5th from 9 p.m. – 10 p.m. in Goodson Chapel for a special Higher Ground service to commemorate Holy Week. The practice of holding Tenebrae services—Latin for darkness—goes back to medieval Christianity. During the service, the room is illuminated only by candlelight. As the story of Jesus’ final hours before his crucifixion is read, the candles are slowly extinguished, one by one, until the room is left in darkness. All are welcome to come participate in this service, and if you would be interested in helping lead through reading a portion of the story, email chaplain Ian Urriola at iurriola@su.edu.
