April 17 @ 7:30 pm
Tenebrae Service (Apr 17. Weds.). Start at 7:30PM in St. Vitus Church. “Tenebrae” in Latin means “shadow” or darkness. Included in this service is Solemn prayers in both words and hymns. Historically, this is known as the “Divine Office” where matins and lauds occur. The readings and hymns are performed in English, Latin, and Slovenian. St Vitus Parish is one of few in the diocese of Cleveland to have had a continuous Tenebrae service for 25+ years. As the service progresses candles are extinguished until there are no lit candles.
