HOLY WEEK 2014 AT ST. JOHN KANTY
Wednesday, April 16: Tenebrae Service at 7 p.m.
Come to St. John Kanty for Tenebrae: an ancient and moving liturgy that leads us into the overwhelming feeling of reverence for the story of Christ dying on the cross for the redemption of our sins. Come prepare yourself to join with Christ in his journey from Gethsemane to Calvary and onto our salvation with his Resurrection. St. John Kanty is one of the few churches offering the opportunity to experience this ancient tradition. All are welcome to join us for this solemn beginning of our Holy Week journey. This presentation will consist of hymns under the direction of Mr. Lawrence Maguda, Music Director, and readings by St. John Kanty’s Ministers of the Word.
