WHAT IS A TENEBRAE SERVICE?
Wednesday April 17, 2019 - 7:00 pm - Waterloo - Tenebrae Liturgy at the Waterloo Campus. The Tenebrae Liturgy is a combination of many ancient traditions of the Church. The word Tenebrae is Latin, and means “shadows.” The purpose of the liturgy is to recreate the emotional aspects of the Passion of our Lord - His betrayal, abandonment, and the agony of the events that would follow. Most unique in the liturgy is its abrupt ending – a sign that we are a people who wait in hope for Christ’s glorious resurrection and his triumph over sin and death. The liturgy begins with a candelabra placed upon the altar, and as the liturgy progresses, a candle is extinguished. At the end of the liturgy, the final candle is taken from the assembly’s view for a few moments. During this time, the assembly pounds on the pews to symbolize the closing of our Lord’s tomb. The candle is then returned, and the assembly departs in silence. It is a very powerful liturgy.
