Good Friday service planned

Published 7:59pm Sunday, April 1, 2012

ACTION (Area Churches Together In One Network) invites the community of Dowagiac and surrounding areas to gather for an ecumenical Good Friday service.
The service will be one of Tenebrae, or “shadows,” which dates back to 8th century Rome.
The most significant aspect of this service is the gradual extinguishing of candles in the room, symbolizing the flight of the apostles and the darkness and disturbance that accompanied Christ’s death on the cross.
At the end of the service, everyone leaves in silence.
The service will be 7 p.m. Friday at Federated Covenant Church, 202 Center St.
