SUNDAY, DECEMBER 10
The Longest Night Service
Thursday, December 21 at 6 p.m. • in-person & live-streamed
The Christmas season is a time of joy and expectation but it can also deepen the pain and isolation experienced by those who are grieving. The Longest Night is a worship service with Holy Eucharist meant to speak to the needs of those experiencing grief and loss, and is scheduled around the winter solstice (the shortest day and longest night of the calendar year), which occurs around December 21 each year.
This service is hosted by the Grief Group, the Pastoral Care Committee and Community of Hope, all of whom provide care to Epiphany parishioners who would like pastoral support. The service will also be live-streamed.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
The Episcopal Church of the Epiphany is an inclusive community called to seek and follow Jesus Christ. We welcome all people in the Eucharistic fellowship of Christ’s Body. We receive strength and encouragement at the common table to carry out Christ’s work of reconciliation in our broken world. Nourished by worship and witness, learning and teaching, fellowship and service, we strive to live out the Gospel’s radical values with gladness of heart.
