Good Friday marks the death of Jesus Christ. It is called “good” because of what Jesus’ death means for the redemption of the world. “Tenebrae” is Latin for “darkness.” The church has practiced the Service of Tenebrae since medieval times. It is a service without the benefits of Christ’s resurrection. The service is a prolonged meditation on Christ’s suffering. As the service proceeds, the room changes from light to darkness until all that remains is the Candle of Prophecy. Covenant’s Sanctuary Choir and a string quartet will provide music for Friday's service. Request childcare here.
