Tenebrae

During Lent, our usual 6:15 Wednesday Evening Prayer is replaced by alternate forms of evening worship.

For the final Wednesday of Lent, we will shift our evening worship to follow the Lenten Soup and Book Study.  Since this is the Wednesday of Holy Week, we will close in darkness with a form of Tenebrae.

The name Tenebrae (Latin for "darkness" or "shadows") has for centuries been applied to the ancient monastic night and pre-dawn services (Compline and Lauds) of the last three days of Holy Week, which in medieval times came to be celebrated on the previous evenings.
