Office of Tenebrae, St. James Anglican Church

Easter Week and the Office of Tenebrae. Through the service of shadows the 15 candles were individually extinguished as the choir chanted psalms and the clergy and congregations recited readings. It was wonderful to sit with Elizabeth and Phil returned for Easter Week vacation from working at the medical school in Saudi Arabia. Gilbert insisted on sitting between them for the whole service, ecstatic to have his friends returned. A solemn service it was moving in it's simplicity.
