St. Hildegard’s Sanctuary ~ Contemplative Service for the Longest Night

This gentle service is for any who long for a quiet space of reflection amidst the holiday season and/or find the season challenging: for those who carry pain and loss juxtaposed with celebration; for those who are unsettled by bright lights, loud music, and over-activity; for those who are exhausted by the festive and often hectic atmosphere; for those who find that busyness has overshadowed the meaning of the season or overwhelmed any simple joy it might bring.

This is time and space for quiet and rest; for acknowledging loss; for sitting with sorrow; for attending to silence; for naming our longings; and for hoping in the peace, love, and true joy of the season.

We are graced to have Clare Morgan, Celtic harpist and vocalist, offer musical accompaniment for this service.

All are warmly welcome.
