Shrine hosts rare Tenebrae service

While many Christian churches will take time this week to celebrate Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday, the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Champion will continue its special list of Easter season services one day earlier.  The Tenebrae, also known as the Shadows service is a solemn nighttime mass featuring candles that get extinguished one by one as the stories from the Passion of Christ are told. Father John Broussard, the Shrine’s Rector, explains why not many churches celebrate the Tenebrae anymore.

Much like its midnight mass at Christmas, the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help is one of the only Catholic churches outside the city of Green Bay in the area celebrating the Tenebrae. The Tenebrae will take place beginning at 7:30 p.m.
