Tenebrae Service, Friday, April 8, 2022 at 7 PM

Please plan to pray with us at this special prelude to Holy Week, an adaptation of the Liturgy of Tenebrae (meaning “darkness” or “shadows”). This sacred service features seven readings relating the story of Jesus’ passion and death with sung response by the St. John Paul II Schola Cantorum. Candles and lighting are extinguished after each reading, with gradual darkness symbolizing the coming darkness of Jesus’ death. Choral works by Tallis, Byrd, Croce, Haydn, Farrant, Palestrina and others will be performed by the Schola, an “a cappella” choir dedicated to preserving, promoting and performing sacred choral works from the great treasury of music of the Catholic Church. Their repertoire ranges from Gregorian Chant to masterpieces of sacred polyphony from the Middle Ages to modern times. Follow them on Facebook @JP2Schola.

Only one opportunity remains, and it is this Sunday, December 30. Take advantage of a little holiday “down time” to experience our one-of-a-kind replication of twelfth-century Lombard-Romanesque architecture featuring handmade bricks set in a style dating back to the Middle Ages, an elaborate display of medieval iconography, and more than 2,000 symbols summarizing Christian beliefs in ceramic tiles, paintings and sculpture.

Our site is wheelchair accessible, and visitors are encouraged to bring cameras and binoculars.

A non-profit organization, Explore Buffalo® provides tours and other opportunities to discover Buffalo’s great architecture, history, and neighborhoods.
