Sunday, April  9 – 10:15 am – St. Francis de Sales Church,47th & Springfield 
Ave. – Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord.
Tuesday April 11 – 7 pm -St. Francis de Sales Church, 47th & Springfield Ave. – 
Tenebrae,a choral concert preparation for Holy Week. Psalms and hymns of lament 
are read andsung, and all are invited to reflect on the poetry and great 
mystery ofChrist’s death.  There will be readings, chants, and hymns, including 
piecesby Palestrina, Garau, and Byrd. Throughoutthe hour, every candle and 
light in the church is extinguished–all except one,to represent Christ in the 
great darkness of the silent church. A loud noise(called the strepitum) is 
heard: the“shudder of creation” at the death of Jesus. All depart in silence.
