Tenebrae at Queen of Archangels Chapel, Snow Shoe, Good Friday @8pm

posted Apr 12, 2017, 2:28 PM by Saint Benedict Schola Cantorum

The service of Tenebrae will be sung at the Queen of Archangels parish chapel, 204 South 4th Street, Snow Shoe, PA. This service of "Darkness" is based on Vigils of Holy Saturday, from the traditional form of the Divine Office. It includes powerful symbolism, psalms and readings: we are deprived of the Lord's presence following his betrayal and Passion, but there remains the mysterious, luminous hope of his Resurrection.
