Maundy Thursday, April 21, 7 p.m.
The Thursday of Holy Week — Maundy Thursday — takes its name from the Latin word “mandatum” which means “commandment,” referring to Jesus' commandment for His disciples to love one another (John 13:34).
On this evening, Christians recall the events that transpired between Jesus and his disciples in an upper room in Jerusalem on the night before his crucifix- ion, including the institution of Holy Communion.
Good Friday, April 22, 12 noon and 7 p.m.
The Friday of Holy Week — Good Friday — centers on the story of the death and burial of Jesus. The story centers on the cross and the very real and very painful sacrifice that Jesus made on the world’s behalf.
The Tenebrae Service is a service of darkness. (The word Tenebrae means “the extinguishing of light.”)
The service begins in silence and ends in almost total darkness as the lights are gradually dimmed. The extinguishing of the candles is designed to remind us of the events that led to the darkness that covered the earth on the first Good Friday.
