A contemplative celebration of the Holy Eucharist.
It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year, but not for everyone. For some people, perhaps more than we realize, the holiday season from Thanksgiving through the New Year is particularly difficult and stressful because so much of the emphasis is centered around family. But for those who have suffered the death of a loved one, inevitable family difficulties or job or financial loss there may be sadness. Emmanuel Church will address this need both liturgically and pastorally by offering a contemplative celebration of the Holy Eucharist on the Winter Solstice, December 21. All are invited to attend and participate in our Silent Lights Eucharist, but particularly those who are feeling personal loss. We want to encourage everyone in our community to come, if not for yourself, to support others. This is also an excellent opportunity to invite a friend who may benefit from this offering. We will gather on this day when there are the fewest hours of light shortly after sunset at 5:30pm.
