Maundy Thursday Service

Maundy Thursday - Tenebrae
April 18, 2019  -  7:30 pm

Annisquam Village Church
820 Washington St., Gloucester MA. 01930
Rt. 127, corner of Leonard St.

Entering the Darkness ~ Tenebrae means “shadows.”

This service is an enactment of Jesus’ last hours with his disciples. One by one, they abandon him, extinguishing a candle as they go. In the end, we sit in darkness as we hear a voice singing, “Were you there when they crucified my Lord?” The service ends in silence.

On this night we enter the dark period of Holy Week when we recognize that the joy of Easter is preceded by Jesus’ betrayal, trial, and crucifixion.

If you are interested in reading the part of a disciple, or have already signed up, please contact Michelle.
