Good Friday: Tenebrae - Prayer of Shadows

  • St. Joseph's Salesian Youth Retreat Center 8301 Arroyo Drive Rosemead, CA, 91770 United States (map)

Tenebrae (Lat. darkness) is an ancient Holy Week service of shadows where we mournfully chant and read the Liturgy of the Hours, other Scriptures with commentaries while distinguish each candle’s light until darkness surrounds the sanctuary.

What will happen? You will be enveloped in sounds and visuals that will take you to the Passion, Death and Silence of Christ. Additionally to what is described above, we will sing Taize songs, expend Liturgy of the Hours by meditative singing Lectio Divina based on the Psalms. Our focus is intercessory prayer for various intentions since Good Friday is the day when the whole Church intercedes continually for the world to receive the salvation of Christ.

This Tenebrae service is part of 24 Hours with Our King collaboration with other ministries and groups during which you will be able to participate in Stations of the Cross, Adoration, Silence, Rosary, Meditation and more. Pray with us anytime during the day, morning or night. Bring your family and friends.
