Tenebrae Service - Scarborough

Sunday, March 24 from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM

A Tenebrae Service will be held on Palm Sunday, March 24, beginning at 7 p.m. at St. Maximilian Kolbe Church in Scarborough.

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. The service includes a series of Scripture readings commemorating Jesus’ final week, ending with his burial. At the end of each reading a candle is snuffed out, until the final candle, the Christ candle, is carried out, leaving the room in darkness.
