Longest Night Christmas Service Tomorrow

Sunday, Dec. 21 Join the Living will host space for meditation, community meal sharing, and a time for collective reflection and prayers. All are welcome to participate in any part of the evening.

4 — 6:30 pm

Silent, personal meditation and prayer in the Sanctuary.

The small stone and wood sanctuary of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church will be lit with candles and decked out with fresh Christmas greens. It will be true sanctuary and refuge. Come and go any time from 4 to 6:30. Simply sit in the silence for as long as you like, or light a candle, or say a prayer. It's open space for you. All welcome.

5:30 pm

A meal will be available in the parish hall.

Vegetarian. Local food. By pay-what-you-can donation.
All welcome.

6:30 pm

A short service of readings, prayer, reflection, and music.

We will honor the longest night, as well as the grief, sadness, fear, and anger we may carry with us at this time, but we will also celebrate the light of Christ, and pray that the light be born in our world anew. All Welcome.

St. Andrew's Episcopal Church is located at 545 S. 5th Ave (at the corner of 5th Ave and 16th Street).

Parking is available on the street in the neighborhood. The church is wheelchair accessible.
