Tenebrae Service in Augusta

Monday, March 25 from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM

A Tenebrae Service will be held on March 25, the Monday of Holy Week, at 7 p.m. at St. Mary of the Assumption Church, 41 Western Avenue in Augusta.

Tenebrae services date back centuries and grew out of a combination of night prayer and early morning prayer, with an additional focus on the Passion of our Lord. Tenebrae is Latin for shadows or darkness. Services traditionally are held in candlelight, with candles extinguished one by one as those in attendance reflect on Christ's suffering and death. Often, one candle remains symbolic of the light of Christ which cannot be extinguished.
