St Paul's Chapel


The word Tenebrae is Latin for ‘shadows’ or ‘darkness’. The Tenebrae service is a tradition in Christian history that takes place on one of the last three days of Holy Week: Monday, Thursday, Good Friday or Holy Saturday.

This service is to remember the events that occurred in Jesus’ life, from the exuberant entrace into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday through to the night of Jesus’ burial on Good Friday.
