Comfort and Peace at Christmas: A Service of Healing for Aching Hearts

December 18, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2022, 7 P.M., Thomsen Chapel

The liturgy known in previous years as “Blue Christmas” has been re-imagined as “Comfort and Peace at Christmas” and will be offered this year on Sunday evening, December 18, at 7 p.m., in lieu of the Contemplative Eucharist that day. Saint Mark’s has a long-standing tradition of holding space for prayerful care and companionship for those who find the holiday season a difficult time—for many who have experienced loss, grief, or hardship, the “festive season” can in fact be particularly painful and alienating.

This special service of scripture, candle lighting, and healing prayer in Thomsen Chapel is intended to honor whatever you may be going through, while offering the hope of light and peace. This liturgy will be offered in person only. All are welcome.
