Blue Christmas Service

Date: 
Sunday, December 15, 2019 - 6:30pm

As part of our Community Common Prayer Series, St. Mark’s is offering a “Blue Christmas Service.” This liturgy is quiet meditative service especially for those for whom the Christmas season is a profoundly sad and lonely time, a reminder of loss and brokenness.The death or impending death of a loved one, loss of health or employment, family crises, separation or divorce, and depression are some of the many reasons that Christmas can be painful and isolating. Our lighting of candles offers opportunity for remembrance, reflection, prayer and spiritual healing. One can grieve knowing they are not alone and be comforted and strengthened by the love of Christ and those present. Come for yourself, for someone you love or for those who suffer around the world. A light shines in the darkness. Free refreshments and conversation will be available following the service. The service is free. All are welcome.
