Holy Wednesday, Tenebrae

March 23, 2016 at 6:00 PM

St. Luke's Episcopal Church (Get Directions)
110 E. 17th
Ada, OK 74820

This is a service which involves the gradual extinguishing of candles while Psalms and biblical texts are read. The church is finally in complete darkness when a loud noise (recalling the earthquake during Christ’s Passion) is made and the last candle is brought back, lighted. The congregation leaves by its light. Tenebrae, in total, provides a symbolic overview of Holy Week, including Jesus’ Resurrection.
