Maundy Thursday, March 29th, the Cathedral Choir will present A Service of Darkness at 7:30 pm.


This Service of Darkness commemorates the suffering and death of Christ, and is based on the ancient Tenebrae. Candles symbolize Christ, who is our Light and the Light of the world. Seven anthems are designed for the ser-vice with meditations based on the Seven Words from the Cross. With each meditation, the candles (seven) are progressively extinguished. The ancient custom of placing a veil over the altar cross takes place during the singing of the seventh meditation.
