Wednesday, March 31st  @ 7 pm  -  Tenebrae     

      Click for downloadable service materials:   Service Booklet​ or LARGE print

Please join us, in community with St. Peter's Perth Amboy, St. James Edison and Trinity Episcopal Church, for a service rich with symbolic meaning that dates back to medieval  times.  Tenebrae (the Latin word for “darkness” or “shadows”) has for  centuries been   applied to the ancient monastic night and early morning services (Matins and Lauds) of the last three days of Holy Week, which in medieval times  came to be celebrated on the preceding evenings. The most conspicuous feature of the service is the  gradual extinguishing of candles and other lights in the church until only a single candle,  considered a symbol of our Lord,  remains. Toward the end of the service this   candle is hidden, typifying the apparent victory  ​ of the forces of evil. At the very end, a loud noise is made, symbolizing the earthquake at the time of the resurrection  ​(Matthew 28:2), the hidden candle is restored to its place, and by its light all depart in silence.

        Tuesday, March 30th @ 6:30 pm - Passover Seder

    Passover Seder via Zoom

For Christians, Passover is of  special interest.  It is linked to The Last Supper, as Jesus chose to celebrate the Passover Seder with  his disciples  as the last meal before he was put to death. It was at  this Seder that  the first Eucharist took place. Join us for a wonderful service  with songs & stories celebrating the Jews flight from Egypt as we  connect generations - from our Old Testament ancestors, to the time of Jesus, to those of us alive today -  remembering those who are free, and those who are yet to be freed.

NOTE -  this service will only take place over Zoom - it will not be  streamed on YouTube.
