Tenebrae Service - Cape Elizabeth

St. Bartholomew Church, 8 Two Lights Road, Cape Elizabeth, ME 04107 View Map
Monday, April 15 - 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM

A Tenebrae Service will be held on the Monday of Holy Week, April 15, at 7 p.m. at St. Bartholomew Church, 8 Two Lights Road in Cape Elizabeth.

The service of Tenebrae or “shadows” grew out of a combination of night prayer and early morning prayer, with an additional focus on the commemoration of the Passion of our Lord. The most significant feature of the service is the gradual extinguishing of the lights in the room and the candles around the altar. The candles represent the disciples and other followers of Christ as they all gradually took to flight. Note, however, that the Holy Spirit, as symbolized by the Eternal Light remains undiminished.
