7:30 pm
Good Friday Tenebrae Service
Location: Duke Chapel
Rev. Dr. Luke A. Powery, Dean of the Chapel

Tenebrae (Latin for "shadows" or "darkness") is a solemn observance of Jesus's passion and death. The service marks Jesus's journey to Golgotha and allows for extended meditation through proclamation of the word in scripture and sermon, as well as through music, increasing darkness, and silent reflection. We gather on the evening of Good Friday to enter into the dramatic narrative of Jesus's betrayal, arrest, and crucifixion, and to reflect on God's sacrificial love. Free parking is available in the Bryan Center garage at 125 Science Drive. ADA parking is available in the Bryan Center Surface Lot at the same address. For more parking options, visit
