Maundy Thursday Service of Tenebrae

Thursday, Apr. 14, 7:30 pm

We will gather in the Sanctuary for this solemn, contemplative service of Tenebrae, which recalls the Last Supper through scripture readings and a cappella music. The choir will sing a striking new piece by James MacMillan from “Cantos Sagrados,” featuring the poetry of Argentine-Chilean-American poet Ariel Dorfman. The text narrates a political prisoner’s execution by firing squad – a startling parallel to Jesus Christ, another prisoner who suffered execution for political reasons. The story is told coupled with traditional religious text in Latin. Communion will be served. And, this profound service ends in quiet and total darkness.
