Christmas Eve – Shepherd’s Journey
(If you will need a wheelchair please notify me in advance) To celebrate Christmas Eve this year in the midst of covid we will have a Candlelight Pilgrimage. Masked and distanced we will not gather but process under the stars.
Candle Lit Labyrinth Walk — 5:00 pm. This is optional.
Meet by the Labyrinth for the Gospel Story and Candlelight Procession around the church to see all the Tree Lights. (Dress Warm!) See the Holy Family in the Courtyard. Add an ornament to our Christmas Trees. Enjoy the Angel Gabriel as she flies through our Gathering Hall.
Have a brief moment for a Christmas Prayer in our Sanctuary. Christmas music will be savored. Receive a Blessing of the Eucharist elements which will be taken outside to be consumed around our Labyrinth. Benediction under the Stars!
Christmas Eve at 10:00 pm: A quiet time of personal prayer and adoration will be available for those whose Christmas rhythm includes late night celebration. Come light a candle for your loved ones, the concerns of your heart and all the children. I will be present, the Gospel proclaimed and carols heard – not sung. This is not a worship service but like the Shepherds we too will ponder the Silent Night, Holy Night.
2-1/2 hours of Christmas highlights over the years –
Music, Stories & Pageantry to enjoy throughout the Season!
