NYE Labyrinth Walk with Compline and Midnight Eucharist

December 31, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 12:30 am

Midnight Eucharist at the center of the labyrinth, observing the Feast of the Holy Name.

Since 1999, Seattle’s most peaceful New Year’s tradition. As the old year passes and a new one begins, take time in the quiet, candle-lit space of the cathedral nave to pause, look inward, and experience a large indoor labyrinth laid out in the nave.

Invitations to other contemplative practices will be offered, and musical accompaniment will be provided by guest musicians throughout the evening. Drop by any time between 6 p.m. and midnight; stay for a few minutes or a few hours.

This year, activities especially appropriate for younger children will also be available. Tea and cookies will be served.

All are welcome. Suggested donation: $5 or $15/family.

Since December 31 falls on a Sunday this year, at 9:30 p.m. The Compline Choir will chant the office as usual.

At the stroke of midnight, a special, intimate service of Holy Eucharist is offered in the center of the labyrinth, observing the Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus—a beautiful way to begin 2024. Dean Thomason will preside.
