The Longest Night

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.

All are warmly welcome.

The event is finished.
