Tuesday, April 7, 7 pm

Join the Choir of Saint Francis de Sales as we meditate on the death of Jesus during our annual choral service of Tenebrae.

A service of lamentations, readings, and hymns, Tenebrae brings us into the contemplative darkness and stillness of Holy Week—and so discover the light of hope that cannot be extinguished. This is a singularly beautiful liturgical event that is rarely celebrated. All welcome.
